This service allows a user to apply for an open port on the NWU Firewall.
Requests are approved or disapproved by the IT Director.
The NWU’s Firewall ensures that all internal network computers are protected by preventing any unnecessary and unauthorized network traffic to and from any internal computer connected to the NWU Network.
Central Firewall policies are maintained to grant access in exceptional cases.
The Internal Proxy Servers store or keep copies of the most requested or browsed pages or downloads and in doing so accelerates any consequential requests for the same information from the local storage.
No request will be considered without the application form.
