Computers, mug subnet and the Internet
- Almost all computers here are on a separate subnet of daylight.com,
outside our firewall, and connected to the Internet.
- Machines are labeled with their hostname, IP address and function.
- The "docking" table in the breakout room has a number of
green CAT-5 cables with RJ-45
connectors for your laptops.
If you have DHCP on your laptop, these are super-easy to use:
just plug-in and play.
MUG '02 MUGnet User's Guide.
If not, you'll need to
fiddle your IP address.
- A wireless hub is running. If you have a laptop with an
AirPort or 80211b card, making an 11 Mb/s connection should be trivial.
for faster (100BT) connections, use the
wires on the docking table.
- One username "mug" (password "coffee") on all our machines
- Do personal work in mug/yourname subdirectories
- If a machine looks available, use it! Exceptions are:
- other people's machines on the "docking" table
- machines marked "Oracle server" and "mainline"
- Administrative Mac (OK with permission)
- If a machine looks logged out, feel free to log in as mug/coffee
... it should come up ready-to-go, use it!
- If you need to do anything special (load a tape, ftp something out,
compile a program, get a network address, reconfigure the kernel),
please see one of the Daylight staff.
Be aware that this is not a private nor secure network.
Both incoming and outgoing data may be monitored/recorded.
Please don't use it for anything confidential or proprietary.
- Note that some of the servers (green, red, xmas, dell, online)
machines are not physically here.
(They're back in the machine room linked by radio.)
You won't be able to log in to such machines,
they're database servers.
- Feel free to telnet home and check your mail:
- don't expect to receive mail here (use replyto:)
- don't excessively tie up the show machines reading e-mail
if others are waiting to use them for demos, etc. (This doesn't apply
to your own docked laptops: if you have one, knock yourself out.)
- don't "permanently dock" your laptop at a fixed location
and leave it there, unless it's OK for others to use it.
The docking stations are intended to be shared resources.
- do e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Speakers and listeners
- Speakers: if you have special requirements, please let us know!
Everything except mic/PA and O/H projectors (w/ and w/o
computer screen) count as "special". HTML presentations are
strongly preferred. We can probably accomodate your needs, but
we need to know about them.
Contact Dave, Jeremy or Mick as first choices.
- Demo-ers and special interest groups:
Please let us know ASAP about time/topic/requirements.
