Notebook and Mobile Devices (Internet) Network Access @ DESY Zeuthen
If you want to connect a notebook or other mobile device to the DESY Zeuthen network you have to follow the instructions below. The MAC addresses and responsible persons of all mobile devices have to be made known to the computer center.
Network Access Facilities
1. Internal access
via cable attached Ethernet interface for trusted devices (see below)
via wireless interface
in addition to being trusted, the device has to use a special SSID and a WEP key. These are identical for the internal networks at DESY, both in Hamburg and Zeuthen.
You will get the SSID and WEP key from uco-zn on request. If you do not use the WEP key your registered notebook will only get access to the guest subnet.
2. External access (guest subnet, non trusted devices)
cable based and wireless interface
The network access to non trusted devices will be limited to the same services like other external hosts (no AFS).
The MAC address of the device and the responsible person must be made known to the computer center.
For this purpose the Web form
must filled out inside the local area network.
Everyone who has an account at DESY is authorised to fill the Web form from every PC (excluded guest subnet).
15 minutes after the registration the notebook should get access to the network. The maximum expiration time of registration is one year, the default 7 days.
From outside you can send a request to UCO Zeuthen, email firstname.lastname@example.org, asking to register the mac addresses of your notebook.
How to register as a trusted device
The DESY Computer Security Council (RSR) demands that the persons responsible for a computer that should be connected to the internal DESY network have to read
obey the rules and sign the form mentioned there. The form has to be sent to uco Zeuthen:
email : email@example.com fax : +49 33762 77216 surface mail : DESY Zeuthen, UCO, Platanenallee 6, 15738 Zeuthen
We denote a notebook for which a signature of the responsible person is available a trusted device .
- For DESY notebooks centrally supported by DV Zeuthen you should only take attention:
- Whereas the wireless network interfaces of devices registered at DESY in Hamburg are considered as trusted devices too, you have to register the cable based network interface in Zeuthen additionally.
All mobile devices for which the responsible person did not sign the document mentioned above are non trusted devices.
- After the receipt of the signed form we will activate the internal network access for the notebook.
If you would like to connect your notebook to the internal DESY network in Hamburg too we will communicate the information to the network group in Hamburg and initiate the registration of the wireless interface if necessary. You have to contact the network segment administrator to register the cable interface.
