IP Request Instructions and Responsibilities
The Faculty of Computer Science manages its own physical network. Most general networking requirements can be met by UNB's wireless, it is sometimes required, either for speed or reliability, that you are directly wired into a network. This form will allow you to apply for an IP address on Comptuer Science's network. Before you fill out the webform, make sure that you take a moment and read through the Responsibilities, Acceptible Use Policy, and Consequences sections.
These laboratories are owned by the Faculty of Computer Science, University of New Brunswick, and have been established through a great deal of time, energy, and expense to allow for instruction and research in Computer Science. By giving you access to these laboratories, you inherit the following responsibilities:
- Authorization is assigned to one person, and one person only. Do not give, lend, or otherwise share this resource or your authorization may be revoked.
- If you suspect that someone is using your access, e.g. by having acquired a copy of your UCard or login information, notify the Faculty of Computer Science administration at once. The authorization can be disabled and a temporary one assigned for your own protection.
- Having an IP address does not give you permission to disconnect, either from power of the network, existing equipment. There are open network drops in a number of rooms that will allow you physical access to the network without disconnecting equipment.
In addition to the above stated responsibilities, you are also bound to the University of New Brunswick's Acceptible Use Policy for Information Technology equipment. A copy of this policy can be found here:
Consequences of Irresponsible Behavior
Anyone failing to act responsibly, as defined above, will have their access to these laboratories disabled. The University may also take other actions as deemed appropriate.
