Bear Access Name is being retired

As previously announced by CIT, due to low demand, resource allocation priorities, and less need since the retirement of the CornellC mainframe, CIT is discontinuing packaging and distribution of terminal emulation and Telnet client software previously available through the Bear Access web site. There are also some changes in handling of FTP software, please see below for details.

Since the remaining programs associated with Bear Access (Symantec Endpoint Protection, Kerberos, Thunderbird, Fetch, and FileZilla) are available through other Cornell IT Service sites and generally downloaded individually, the Bear Access name and website will be retired on November 30, 2012.

Applications no longer packaged by CIT can still be obtained from other sources:

The following applications will continue to be available through Cornell IT Service sites:
Symantec Endpoint Protection:
Kerberos: (Installed as part of Net-Print)

As another option, these applications will be included in the upcoming Managed Desktop service:

FileZilla (Also a free download from
