Remote Access Accounts

Remote Access Accounts

May 6, 2009

For the past several years employed two AT&T dialup lines and two T-Mobile WiFi accounts for faculty who are traveling. Due to the low use of the dialup lines we will be discontinuing them, and likely be converting the AT&T dialup lines to AT&T or another vendor's Wifi accounts. Having two different vendors will provide significant overlap, and gain some coverage that we do not currently have. We will send out the information on those accounts when they are configured.

More information on the current mobile accounts can be found here:

The Lab staff is currently reviewing other remote access plans but welcomes recommendations.

The purpose of the WiFi accounts is for faculty use when traveling or for local use in exigent circumstances. They are not intended for extended local use.

Please contact the Lab staff if you have any questions or comments.
