The CSC has commissioned a new virtual web hosting facility for securely hosting all web sites of the form http://xyz.iitd.ernet.in which are not maintained by CSC. Each such web site will be securely maintained as a virtual site on the same server. The CSC would like to consolidate all such web sites to the new facility by Feb 15, 2011. Maintainers of such sites are requested to get in touch with the CSC web group and move their web sites to the new facility before the deadline.

Print PDF

We support VPN (virtual private network) for connecting to the IITD internal LAN from outside IITD.  We use OpenVPN, and run an OpenVPN server on ssh2.iitd.ernet.in (for faculty/retfaculty/emeritus) and vpn.iitd.ernet.in (for part-time msr/ part-time phd students). VPN access is granted only to faculty/retfaculty/emeritus and part-time msr/part-time phd students. (They can request from https://ldap1.iitd.ac.in/usermanage/services.php.) VPN users are advised to set up their VPN in IITD before going out of the campus to try to use it. The certificate-key pairs will not be sent by email under any circumstances.
