CEU Computer Network

All computers in the CEU are attached to a network (called LAN for Local Area Network), which, in turn, is connected to the internet.

Some technical information for those interested. The Lab machines are personal computers running Windows 2013. They are serviced by numeruous Novell servers and a couple LINUX machines. The accounts are on the Novell system; this account should be used for e-mail as well.

Logging in:

Check if the machine you want to use is switched on by moving the mouse. If it is not, please switch it on, wait until the login prompt appears:

Name: (your login name comes here; do not use Enter)
Password: (enter your password here)

Don not forget to log out as the system does not accept you logging in at two places at the same time. So if you do not log out properly next time the system won't let you in. If this happens, you have to turn to the HELPDESK for help.

Network (WIFI)

At CEU, there are 3 levels of access for your wireless network connection, categorized below by the name of the given network (“SSID”). These networks are available in all CEU buildings.

CEU network SSID: CEU members can authenticate with their Novell username and password. This authentication is only necessary once per device, then the device will remember the settings for its lifetime, so it will not cause any further inconveniences for using Wi-Fi daily. Authenticated devices could have less strict firewall rules, and could have easier access to various resources (Novell network, SAP, GroupWise client, UIS etc.) without VPN. Also we can guarantee sufficient bandwidth for dedicated devices and services on the network, resulting in better overall Wi-Fi performance.

eduroam network SSID: offers internet connectivity to the roaming users of all other eduroam member institutions, being available for visitors from Eduroam partners (and also for CEU community members in other partner institutions). Further info about Eduroam service here.

CEU Guest network SSID: for guest access (external library visitor, other external visitors, conference visitors etc.), we provide a separate guest network called ‘CEU Guest’. This is a more strictly firewalled network, where bandwidth is limited in order to provide sufficient Wi-Fi capacity to the members of CEU (users connected to the ‘CEU’ network). 

Please note that for security reasons, the open access to Wi-Fi (LAPTOP_AREA and other similar networks in all buildings) has been discontinued.

Printing

Every user, who are logged in, and have the right amount of printing quota, are able to print to the previously installed printers. The amount of printing quota may differ for each person. The printing amount of staff and faculty members are unlimited, MA and PHD students get their quota at the starting of each semester. If you are out of quota, you can buy additional credits at Finance Office or at the Student Services Office. Note: Be careful with buying, because printing quotas are NOT transferable to another person, neither can be re-exchanged.
