It is of the utmost importance that we protect the Texas State campus community from malicious activity. Therefore, as an added IT security measure and to protect campus resources, Windows XP computer connectivity to the Texas State network is no longer allowed. This means that while on a Windows XP computer, secure network access (e.g., connecting to the Internet via secure wireless or the wired network) as well as connecting to network resources (e.g., Department Share Drives, and UDrives) will not be granted. This includes Mac computers that have virtual connections to Windows XP operating systems.
Faculty who use Instructional Software or Projects that require Windows XP: At your earliest opportunity, please contact Instructional Technologies Support (512.245.1799) for assistance.
