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 '04 MUGnet User's Guide.
If not, you'll need to fiddle your IP address (talk to Pete).
- A wireless hubs 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 "mugserve" and "fedora"
- 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!
- As always at MUG, everything is "live".
Daylight toolkit programs can be compiled and run in many
(C, C++, Python, Perl, etc. programs under Linux, OS-X, Solaris).
- 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.
Please don't use it for anything seriously confidential or proprietary.
- Note that some of the machines (e.g., daylight and fedora)
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 does not apply to own laptop, i.e.,
we should have plenty of internet bandwidth for normal purposes.)
- 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 Peter Nielson, Pete Wargo or Dave Weininger as first choices.
- Demo-ers and special interest groups:
Please let us know ASAP about time/topic/requirements.
