Regulations and Guidance for use of Live Vertebrate Animals (ACUP, IACUC policies)

On November 10, 2021, when logging in to eSirius from an off-campus location, you’ll need to connect to Cornell’s virtual private network (VPN) first. If you’re off-campus and NOT connected to the VPN, eSirius won’t work. You won’t see an error message, it will just appear that you can’t connect.

When using eSirius on campus nothing will change.

If you don’t have VPN installed on your machine, installation instructions are here: https://it.cornell.edu/cuvpn. You must have administrative privileges on your machine to install new software. If you need assistance, contact your IT help group or the central IT Service Desk, via e-mail itservicedesk@cornell.edu or phone at (607) 255-5500.

After November 10, when you want to use eSirius, connect to the VPN first. Instructions are available here: https://it.cornell.edu/articles/topics/2605/all/823?utm_source=sidebar?utm_source=sidebar
