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

Is there a preference for which msu server to point to until this gets fixed.  Some of my students are not able to access problems that are in the msu domain.

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 LON-CAPA.

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.

I've been using the msu capa library in my set since a long time,

however I don't see it anymore. Do I need an special permission this time?

Can someone let me know who to contact about this ?

Directory does not exist.

thank you very much,
