[LON-CAPA-users] missing /res/msu/ library

MSU IT Services recently made a change to security settings at the MSU  
network border which prevents servers outside MSU connecting to  
LON-CAPA servers in the msu domain via the dedicated port used by  

At present, inbound "internal" LON-CAPA connections to the MSU library  
server (which houses resources in the msu domain) are blocked, and  
hence directory listings for /res/msu are unavailable in user sessions  
hosted on servers in other domains.

You can, however, still log-in to one of the MSU LON-CAPA servers and  
have your user session hosted there. If you do that you'll be able to  
browse /res/msu/physicslib.

I submitted a request about a week ago to MSU IT Services to re-enable  
access to the LON-CAPA port on servers in the msu and msudemo domains  
from other domains, but because of the holiday period the status of  
that request (#17221) remains open.
