Access to FASRC services from China

Access to the FASRC VPN and other FASRC services may be inaccessible to users inside China and other countries with restrictive boundary firewalls.

Unfortunately, due to the ever-changing nature of China’s boundary firewall, there is no way to predict what egress is currently disallowed and their rules are especially aggressive towards blocking Western VPNs.

If access to our VPN (or to any other services) is disallowed, this is beyond our control or ability to work around. Please do not assume you will have normal access from China or other countries with restrictive boundary firewalls.

It is worth noting that SSH access to our login nodes ( does not require you to be on our VPN, but there is still no guarantee that these will be accessible from inside China’s network.
