     18The space itself consists of approximately 100 seats and 70 are wired for 10/100/1000 Ethernet access. Power is provided via 220v British standard BS1363 ports.  There are also two duplex b&w printers available. Please note that there are NO terminals, you must provide your own laptop. This space is a place to get power, wired Internet access, access to printers, and help desk support.
     19
     20When using the Ethernet connections in the Terminal Room, IPv4 addressing is provided via DHCP. Please use Dynamic Auto-configuration for IPv6.
     21
     22== NOC and Ticketing ==
     23
     24If you need to report a problem to the NOC, either stop by the help desk located in the terminal room, or send an email to help@meeting.ietf.org to generate a ticket. Issues can also be reported via the web-based front end to the ticketing system found at: http://meeting.ietf.org (trac).
     25You can also use trac to review outstanding tickets before reporting an issue or to update outstanding tickets.
     26
     27== Network Basics ==
     28       
     29The IETF 72 network connects to the Internet via two links from Eircom.
     30The entire event is addressed out of the 130.129.0.0/16 block for IPv4 and
     312001:df8::/32 for IPv6.
     32       
     33== Wireless ==
     34       
     35An 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless network is being provided liberally on the !CityWest campus. Areas  specifically covered are the meeting rooms and hallways in the conference area, as well as many public areas including the lobby/lounge/restaurant/barspaces at both the !CityWest and !CityWest Golf hotels.
     36
     37To use this network, associate with the beaconed SSID of "ietf" for 802.11a/b/g/n and "ietf-a" for 802.11a/n.  IPv4 addressing is provided via DHCP.  IPv6 clients may use DHCPv6 or Dynamic Auto-configuration.
     38
     39For those interested in more link-layer security, a WPA SSID with 802.1x is available.  The SSIDs are "ietf.1x" and "ietf-a.1x". Do not use WPA-PSK as that will not work.
     40
     41To use 802.1x:
     42 1. Associate to SSID: ietf.1x OR ietf-a.1x
     43 2. Use PEAP/MSCHAPv2
     44 3. Do Not Verify Server Cert and we won't verify yours :)
     45 4. Username (case sensitive): ietf1x or ietf.1x
     46 5. Password (case sensitive): ietf1x or ietf.1x
     47
     48There is another SSID, with no IPv4 service available, for experimentation with IPv6.  This SSID is
     49"ietf-v6ONLY".
     50
     51The proper operation of the wireless network requires the assistance of all users.  One of the most significant issues with wireless performance in past IETF meetings has been wireless clients automatically, or accidentally initiating "ad-hoc" networks that act as the official IETF wireless network, causing other users to associate with false IETF wireless networks.  Therefore, please disable your client's ability to create an ad-hoc network and as well as the ability to automatically join an ad-hoc network.  If you are using Windows XP or Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5 to
     52manage your wireless client, the instructions to disable creation of ad-hoc networks are listed below. If you are using other systems, please do whatever your particular wireless client management system requires to turn off ad-hoc networks.
     53
     54=== Instructions for Mac OS X ===
     55 1. Open System Preferences -> Network -> Airport -> Options
     56 2. Un-check the box for "Create Computer-to-Computer networks".
     57
     58=== Instructions for Windows XP ===
     59 1. Open Properties -> wireless networks -> advanced
     60 2. select "access point (infrastructure) networks only"
     61 3. unselect "automatically connect to non-preferred networks".
     62
     63
     64== Guest Rooms in the !CityWest Hotel ==
     65
     66While the guest rooms are being provided private IPv4 addresses via the hotel's normal guest network, the IETF network is providing an uplink for the additional bandwidth.
     67
     68== Printing ==
     69       
     70Two printers are located in the Terminal Room and are available to all IETF users. The printers themselves are:
     71
     72printer1.meeting.ietf.org (a.k.a. printerred.meeting.ietf.org)  : 130.129.48.94[[BR]]
     73printer2.meeting.ietf.org (a.k.a. printerblue.meeting.ietf.org) : 130.129.48.95
     74
     75printer1 is an HP 4345mfp (the big grey one). This printer can also copy.[[BR]]
     76printer2 is an HP 4300 (the smaller off-white one).
     77
     78Both printers are bonjour discoverable, if you're on the wired net (different from the hotel room net.)
     79
     80=== Instructions for Mac OS X ===
     81 1. Open System Preferences -> Print & Fax -> "+" below printer list
     82 2. Enter "printer1.meeting.ietf.org" or "printer2.meeting.ietf.org" in the Address field.  Leave the Queue field blank.
     83 3. Print using hp4345mfp (printer1) or hp4300 drivers (printer2)
     84 3. Click Add
     85
     86=== Instructions for Windows XP ===
     87 1. Start -> Printers & Faxes --> Add Printer
     88 2. Select "Connect to a Printer on the Internet"
     89 3. Enter "!http://printer1.meeting.ietf.org" or "!http://printer2.meeting.ietf.org" in the field.
     90 4. Windows may or may not have the correct HP 4345mfp or 4300 driver.  However, fear not! The HP 4100 PS driver that ships with XP SP2 has been confirmed to work with both printer1 and printer2.
     91
     92=== Instructions for Linux/Ubuntu ===
     93 1. system -> administration -> printing
     94 2. select new printer
     95 3. select !AppSocket/HP !JettDirect
     96 4. select host 'printer1.meeting.ietf.org' or 'printer2.meeting.ietf.org'
     97 5. keep selecting forward untill complete and it should detect correctly  and install the driver
     98
     99 The steps for Fedora Core 9/Gnome are pretty much the same,  note that you need to enter the root password to access the  printer setup tool
     100
     101== Services ==
     102       
     103The following network services are provided:
     104 *   SMTP – smtp.meeting.ietf.org
     105  * SMTP relay services are provided for users on the IETF network.
     106 *   NTP - ntp.meeting.ietf.org
     107  * Stratum 2 time service is provided via IPv4 and IPv6 unicast.
     108
     109Additionally, full recursive DNS service is being provided from 130.129.5.5 and 2001:df8:0:5::5,
     110which is backed by two servers in a redundant HA configuration.
     111Our domain name is meeting.ietf.org.
     112

     114== Thanks ==
     115       
     116The terminal room and IETF network are made possible by the generous contributions by a number of companies and by the tireless efforts of our volunteer team. If you see any of these people in the halls, please be sure to thank them for all their work!
