Wired You may ask for your laptop to connect to our School "wired" network. Then you are "inside" the Maths firewall, with easy access to Maths services e.g. file copying or printing; access to external services is also fast and easy. Should you wish to connect to the "inside wired" service, find the MAC (aka ethernet) address (e.g. 00:E0:81:21:A6:83) of your network card: - on Windows (in a CommandPrompt window) use ipconfig /all and look for Physical Address (of your wired ethernet device) - on Linux/Mac (in a terminal) use ifconfig -a and look for HWaddr - on Mac go to SystemPreferences Network choose device, Advanced Ethernet and please send this to "support" and ask to set things up for you. Once an IP address and network name are allocated, simply set the laptop to do everything automatic (detect network settings or IP address via DHCP, web connection direct or detect settings automatically). Laptop users may access the School login server via "ssh -X como" to run any commands e.g. tuteroll or access other servers via xfrom, or use scp etc for file transfer. Please see also http://www.maths.usyd.edu.au/u/psz/visitors.html#laptops about settings and printing, and http://www.maths.usyd.edu.au/u/psz/ssh-howto.html about ssh and scp usage (connecting to como, without skeys). For file access you could instead use Samba: on Windows machines go to \\rome, on Linux or Mac connect to smb://rome, maybe see also http://www.maths.usyd.edu.au/u/psz/samba.html#usage Please ensure that your laptop is: - virus-free (e.g. by having some up-to-date AV software and/or by running a non-Windows OS), and - not simultaneously connected to both wireless and wired networks. ----- Wireless Wireless should be working everywhere within Carslaw (and on campus). The various networks are: - UniSydney For staff and students: log in with your unikey - UniSydney-Guest For visitors: sponsoring person to organize access as described in http://www.maths.usyd.edu.au/s/lscnitm/psz-WirelessForVisitors - Eduroam For visitors from, and for USyd people travelling to, subscribing institutions. To set up Eduroam on your laptop, please see the instructions on the "Ask Sydney" site http://staff.ask.sydney.edu.au/ (search eduroam): in May2017 the pages were http://staff.ask.sydney.edu.au/app/answers/detail/a_id/284 http://staff.ask.sydney.edu.au/app/answers/detail/a_id/285 and specifically note that your Eduroam username is UniKey@sydney.edu.au (not your email address). Wireless is operated by central ICT (not by Maths support), see also https://intranet.sydney.edu.au/working/it-phones/using-internet.html and is "outside" of the Maths firewall. Access to Maths services is possible with remote login as described in http://www.maths.usyd.edu.au/loc/comp/alpha/net-security.html#incoming .
