Notes for CALS Admin staff:
  • A VPN connection is required to access the CALS file server.
  • Please test your VPN connection before traveling.  GlobalProtect frequently does auto-updates to ensure the latest version is installed.  However, we've discovered that some old versions become too old and don't allow the auto-installer to run successfully.
