To facilitate access to the Internet as well as the ICT services that UAL provides to the university community, your computer must be connected to the network. To do this, the STIC provides you with the option to connect to the wired Data Network, which is provided through a network socket as well as an IP address, which is not transferable from one device to another.
To physically connect to the Data Network you need:
· A free network point or socket in the vicinity of your PC. Ideally, there should be not be a distance greater than 3 metres between the computer and the network point, otherwise you will need to use a special cable. In the event that there is not a network point at your location, you will need for one to be installed. To do this, you must make the corresponding request through the STIC Customer Service Centre (CSC), indicating the location of the new network points as well as the Cost Centre that will pay for it.
· An IP address. The IP addresses are assigned by the STIC and are non-transferable from one device to another. They cannot be copied or duplicated either.
If you move your computer from one office to another, you must notify the STIC to correctly assign your device's IP address.
