As previously mentioned in our March 2009 update, there were some concerns with the use of unencrypted passwords when accessing Nell. Our first step was to remove CRT and direct all users to SecureCRT. Now we are ready to remove QVT which also makes use of unencrypted passwords. Therefore as of Oct 9th, QVT will no longer be available. You will need to begin using SecureCRT to access Nell which can be accessed through Start, All Programs, SHSU Programs, Communications, CRT, and Nell-Secure. Any old shortcuts on your desktop to QVT will need to be removed manually by you as they will no longer work for you. You can do this by right-clicking on the shortcut located on your desktop and selecting Delete. If you need assistance in removing these shortcuts, creating new ones or accessing Nell using SecureCRT, please contact the Helpdesk.
