Service Feature Pending /Proposed/Delivered Estimated Delivery Estimated Cost Comments Updated
Linux client  

Proposed April 2016.

Delivered 3/22/2018


Estimated March 2018 n/a Husky OnNet runs on the F5 APM device. The APM device currently runs on version 12.x. The vendor recommends UW upgrade to 13.1 when it is available. 13.1 will include support for the Linux plug-in client and is scheduled for installation March 2018. 3/22/18
New WIN and MacOS client packages from UWare  

Proposed Spring 2017.

Delivered February 2018


Available Feb 2018 n/a The vendor advises keeping the client apps in synch with the central APM version. New version packages for the WIN and MacOS clients have been created and are now available for download in preparation for the March 2018 upgrade of the APM to 13.1. 3/22/18
Device Authorization for use with Husky OnNet  Departmental Slice Proposed Feb. 2017 By adding device authorization, a department may use two authentications for access to their Husky OnNet Slice service: 1) UW NetID via UW Groups and 2) device MAC.

Update 6/15/17: initial review finds that the device MAC info is not provided to the central f5 device precluding an authorization step facilitated by the central device.

Downloadable WIN and MacOS client apps customized with HON-D server names included Proposed Aug 2017 To use HON-D with WIN or MacOS devices, users download the client apps from UWare. These client apps are preconfigured with the general Husky OnNet servers. To use a HON-D server, users must ‘add a server’ and enter the department’s HON-D server name. In this feature request, the department has asked the HON team to prepare customer WIN and MacOS clients with the HON-D servers already included.
