    18 There are two color Xerox Phaser 8560 printers available that are labeled with their respective IP addresses.
    19 
    20 There are two VoIP phones provided for domestic calling.  They are based out of Portland, OR.  When dialing any number outside of the 503 area code, simply dial 1 + the phone number.
    21 
    22 == NOC and Ticketing ==
    23 
    24 If you need to report a problem to the NOC, either visit the help desk or send an email to noc@meeting.ietf.org. Issues can also be reported via the web-based front end to the ticketing system found at: http://meeting.ietf.org (trac).
    25 You can also use trac to review outstanding tickets before reporting an issue or to update outstanding tickets.
    26 
    27 == Network Basics ==
    28 
    29 The IETF 73 network is connected to the Internet via a 1Gbit link to the University of Minnesota with a 54Mbit wireless backup link.  The entire event is addressed out of the 130.129.0.0/16 block for IPv4 and 2001:df8::/32 for IPv6.
    30        
    31 == Wireless ==
    32        
    33 An 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless network is being provided. Areas specifically covered are the meeting rooms and common areas on the 2nd and 3rd floors.
    34 
    35 To use this network, associate with "ietf" SSID for 802.11a/b/g/n and "ietf-a" for 802.11a/n.  IPv6 clients may use DHCPv6 or Dynamic Auto-configuration.
    36 
    37 For 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.
    38 
    39 To use 802.1x:
    40  1. Associate to SSID: ietf.1x OR ietf-a.1x
    41  2. Use PEAP/MSCHAPv2
    42  3. Do Not Verify Server Cert.
    43  4. Username (case sensitive): ietf
    44  5. Password (case sensitive): ietf
    45 
    46 There is another SSID, with no IPv4 service available, for experimentation with IPv6.  This SSID is
    47 "ietf-v6ONLY".
    48 
    49 The 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
    50 manage 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.
    51 
    52 === Instructions for Mac OS X ===
    53  1. Open System Preferences -> Network -> Airport -> Options
    54  2. Un-check the box for "Create Computer-to-Computer networks".
    55 
    56 === Instructions for Windows XP ===
    57  1. Open Properties -> wireless networks -> advanced
    58  2. select "access point (infrastructure) networks only"
    59  3. unselect "automatically connect to non-preferred networks".
    60 
    61 
    62 == Guest Rooms in the Hilton Minneapolis Hotel ==
    63 
    64 Wired connectivity will pass through the Hilton's network.  All wireless connectivity (hhonors) will be open and connected via the IETF link.
    65 
    66 == Printing ==
    67        
    68 Two printers are located in the Terminal Room and are available to all IETF users. The printers themselves are:
    69 
    70 term1-printer.meeting.ietf.org : 130.129.48.13
    71 term2-printer.meeting.ietf.org : 130.129.48.14
    72 
    73 Both printers are Xerox Phaser 8560DNs.  Drivers can be obtained from Xerox's support page or the Help Desk.  Direct links to the drivers will be provided as soon as Xerox fixes their web site. :)
    74 
    75 = WORKING =
    76 
    77 === Instructions for Mac OS X ===
    78  1. Open System Preferences -> Print & Fax -> "+" below printer list
    79  2. Enter "printer1.meeting.ietf.org" or "printer2.meeting.ietf.org" in the Address field.  Leave the Queue field blank.
    80  3. Print using hp4345mfp (printer1) or hp4300 drivers (printer2)
    81  3. Click Add
    82 
    83 === Instructions for Windows XP ===
    84  1. Start -> Printers & Faxes --> Add Printer
    85  2. Select "Connect to a Printer on the Internet"
    86  3. Enter "!http://printer1.meeting.ietf.org" or "!http://printer2.meeting.ietf.org" in the field.
    87  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.
    88 
    89 === Instructions for Linux/Ubuntu ===
    90  1. system -> administration -> printing
    91  2. select new printer
    92  3. select !AppSocket/HP !JettDirect
    93  4. select host 'printer1.meeting.ietf.org' or 'printer2.meeting.ietf.org'
    94  5. keep selecting forward untill complete and it should detect correctly  and install the driver
    95 
    96  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
    97
