WAYF’s website briefly down

WAYF's website was briefly down this morning. There will be another period of downtime this afternoon, at 1.00 PM.

The firewall protecting all of DeiC's websites, including www.wayf.dk, lost its connection to the rest of the network around 10.27 AM. A temporary solution to the problem is now in place.

To maximise stability, DeiC will install a permanent solution to the problem during an extraordinary service window this afternoon at 1.00 PM. The service window is associated with a brief interruption in the connection to all websites, and is expected to last no longer than 2 minutes.

The outage had no effect on the WAYF service itself. And the 1 o'clock service window won't affect the WAYF service either.
