Computer Services Configuring computers for wireless network access While there is no additional charge for participating in the campus wireless network, rental devices are available for the rate of $40 per semester, and may be arranged through the Computer Ser- vices office in the basement of the Administration Building. CUC has implemented a SafeConnect Network Access Control solution to make it easier for users to participate in the campus Network, and ensure security of the network and individual ma- chines against common threats. This system will ensure that you have current Anti-Virus software running, critical Microsoft up- dates and Anti-Spyware software installed, as per our policies. In order to fully operate, you will need to set your browser to Auto Configure the proxy settings. In Internet Explorer this is ac- complished by choosing Internet Options from the Tools menu, then click on the Connections tab, and click on the Lan Settings button, which will bring up the screen shown to the right. Make sure that Automatically Detect Settings is checked (all other boxes should be un-checked) then click OK to save this setting, and return to your browser. Firefox and other browsers may have a similar op- tion that in our tests does seem to work. If you have VISTA, a MAC computer or experience other problems during the setup process, you may have to set the proxy manually as shown here. Follow the above instructions to the Local Area Network (LAN) Setting op- tion (Tools, Internet Options, Connections, Lan Settings) Uncheck the Automatically Detect Settings box, and check both boxes in the Proxy Server section as shown below, filling in the address as 192.168.200.1 and Port as 8080. Next, click the Ad- vanced button and fill in the Exceptions with the following three entries, separated with a semi-colon (;), as shown to the right. 220.127.116.11; 172.17.200.2; auth.impulse.com Click OK to save this and return to your browser. You should close and re- start your browser to apply the settings. (MAC users can set these under the Network Preferences, Proxy settings area) If you have done the manual settings, these will need to be turned off when you leave campus or want to participate in other networks. Once you have your proxy settings configured, you will want to close and re-open your browser to apply the settings. You should then be presented with a Welcome page with a link to download a Policy Key program that will run on your computer and report on the status of Anti-virus programs etc. No personal information is monitored by this program, and it may be un-installed at any time through the Add-Remove Programs area. Once you have downloaded and installed this Policy Key, restart your browser and your computer will then be evaluated for compliance with our poli- cies (current Anti-Virus, no peer-to-peer or music sharing programs, current critical Microsoft up- dates). If you are not compliant in any of these areas, you will be provided an opportunity to install or download what is necessary. (Currently we recommend Anti-Spyware software, this is likely to be an enforceable policy soon). If you do not have Anti-Virus software installed, we recommend the free AVG program available from http://free.grisoft.com. (once installed, you will need to input our proxy server address (192.168.200.1) and port (8080) in the Update Settings area, detailed instructions are available in the FAQ on the Computer Services web site). Once your computer is compliant, you should then be directed to a LOGIN page (shown here) where you must provide the Username and Pass- word provided by Computer Services when you cre- ated your account. You should then be cleared for network access. If you have problems with any of these steps, please contact Computer Services (Extension 4021, office in the basement of the Administration Building) to book a time for assistance. During this transition time, we will do our best to assist with setting up your com- puters, but if your computers have other issues caus- ing problems, we may require that you have those repaired before attempting to resolve the connection issue. You will be granted restricted access for a period of two weeks. Before that time, you will need to contact Computer Services to have your IP Ad- dress moved into a less restricted access group. This may be done by e-mailing us (firstname.lastname@example.org) your IP Address and your name, stating if you are a CUC or PAA student (PAA Students require parental consent), or by stopping by our office. Also, we are pleased to announce that Advanced Systems is operating a hardware and soft- ware repair and service at reduced rates for students and CUC faculty/staff personal com- puters. This is operating out of an office beside Computer Services and their office hours will be posted there.
