#infra LF VPN switch from UDP to TCP #infra

Trevor Bramwell

Hi all,

If you don't have access to the LF Lab VPN, feel free to disregard this

There have been a few requests to switch the LF VPN from UDP to TCP.
Our infra team is happy to make this change, we just need to schedule a
time for it as it requires changes to both our firewall and VPN client.

This will not affect Jenkins connections, only the connection for users
who need to access resources in the LF Lab (lf-build*, lf-virtual*,

The only thing VPN users with an openvpn client configuration will need
to change is:

proto udp


proto tcp

If you're using a graphical VPN client, there should be just a simple
checkbox for TCP that needs to be checked.

Unless there are any objections, I'd like to schedule this switchover at
the following time:

Wednesday September 26th, 2018 2PM PDT

Given this time is during ONS next week (Wed 11PM CEST) I just wanted to
make sure there aren't any objections to the time frame.

We'll be sending out an email to everyone who currenlty has VPN access
as well to make sure they're aware of the change.

Please let me know if you have any questions or feel we need to schedule
this at a different time.
