WHAT ARE WE DOING?
Computing will turn off weakftp (ftp://fndca1.fnal.gov:24126/) to fulfill computer security requirements. weakftp in Public dCache uses cleartext username and password for read-only authentication, which is not allowed.
WHEN WILL THIS OCCUR?
Wednesday, March 31; 5 p.m. Central Time
WHAT IS THE IMPACT TO YOU?
You cannot use weakftp to read data in Public dCache after 5 p.m.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?
Users who used weakftp were already asked to switch to other protocols to access Public dCache. We haven’t seen any real users access data in dCache using weakftp. Please do not use weakftp to read data in the future.
