Updated Remote access guide

May 22nd, 2018 by Henrik Saari

To ease the pain of Mac users LabraNet-wide, LabraNet Remote access guide has been updated. Additional documentation has been provided for L2TP/IPSec VPN for Mac OS users and documentation related to iSstp has been removed.


October 26th, 2017 by Henrik Saari

As a reminder, the old VPN-service vpn.labranet.jamk.fi has been shut down. Please use the new server at sslvpn.labranet.jamk.fi. Instructions for using the new server and connection are available here.

LabraNet VPN Service

August 16th, 2017 by Henrik Saari

LabraNet VPN service has been updated to a more secure protocol. This means the old server, vpn.labranet.jamk.fi, will be gracefully laid to rest during the upcoming fall semester (probably week 42). Users should use the new server at sslvpn.labranet.jamk.fi from this point forward and to reflect this change, LabraNet Remote Access Guide has been updated with instructions on how to set up the new connection.

Set up your new connection!

Should you encounter any issues, please contact LabraNet Helpdesk.

Microsoft Imagine Academy webstore issue

July 18th, 2017 by Henrik Saari

There is an ongoing issue with Microsoft Imagine Academy webstore. Some products yield erroneous download links which result in 403 Forbidden error messages. MS Imagine webteam at Kivuto is looking into the issue and hopefully it will be resolved soon.

UPDATE 21.9.2017! So far it seems this is a problem limited to Funet and Telia customers, so as a workaround you should try downloading your products from a different network if possible.

UPDATE 14.9.2018! Since this is still an issue, LabraNet administration would like to remind you that you will still get a valid license through Imagine Academy webstore at onthehub. You can obtain the installation media from other sources, like the
media creation tool Microsoft offers

Internet connection issues

February 22nd, 2016 by Kari Nurmi

There’s an ongoing problem with our Internet connection on the operator end (a cable break between Jyväskylä and Jämsä.)

We have restoted access to jamk services (optima and so on), but the greater Internet remains unreachable.

As of ~12:20, everything appears to be working again.

Welcome to Windows 10

January 11th, 2016 by Kari Nurmi

LabraNet has transitioned to Windows 10 over the end of year holidays. We’re aware of some issues, but if you notice missing or broken software, please report it to us using our contact form.

Some things to look out for:

  • Some computers may have the login screen keyboard layout as English.  You can check for this by typing in the username field.
  • If your homefolders are not mapped automatically, Z can be found at \\storage\homes\%USERNAME and S at \\student\%USERNAME%
  • Likewise if printers are not mapped, they can be found in \\printerservices
  • To log off, click on your username in the start menu and choose log off.
