Login, registration of terminals, examples with explanations

Please prepare your application according to these guidelines and send it in an email to hostmaster@noc.tuwien.ac.at. Please use only the above email address and not the personal email addresses of employees, otherwise the application will be delayed or not processed at all.

Registration can only be carried out by TUnet certifying officers of the institute or department.

Coordination within the Institute is the responsibility of the person making the application. Incomplete applications can only be processed once the necessary data is available. Registrations of new applications or changes in the TCP/IP name service are usually activated the next morning, provided that the application arrives by about noon on a working day.

Please use terms in the subject of your application that are related to the content, such as Login computer name(s), delete computer name(s), change computer name(s), basic firewall protection, activation of network connections, etc.

For standard computers, a simplified login is sufficient: The computers are entered without (!) subobject Interface, i.e. the IP address and the MAC address are entered directly at device level. The network card type no longer needs to be specified and the connection to the network cable (known as the socket name) is made directly to the main object (when applying in the TUnet database). For more complex devices a subdivision of main object and interfaces is still necessary!

Jobs

For virtual computers on workstations (e.g. Macintosh with SoftPC), it is usually sufficient to register a second name, e.g.

(m)
*na: NA,,computer.subdomain
*na: IP,128.130.88.133, computer.subdomain.tuwien.ac.at (specify IP for secure identification)
*na: IP2,128,130,88,134, softpc.subdomain.tuwien.ac.at
*na: MAC,00-33-E9-1D-AA-3E

Server

For virtual computers that act as servers or are accessible from the network with their own MAC address, a separate host entry is created in the TUnet-DB. The network connection is not connected to the network connection point as usual, but to the network interface of the physical computer.

If your system cannot be represented by the examples given, please contact us in good time. Please describe the desired configuration as precisely as possible in an informal text. We will support you with the registration to avoid problems in advance.

In addition to the basic protection provided by generally blocked ports, all institute networks have an extended protection at the TU firewall system for access from the Internet.

If such access protection exists for address ranges or individual hosts, but services are still to be offered to the outside world on the Internet, these must be explicitly enabled:

The following service groups are available for explicit activation: WWW, FTP, SSH, POPIMAP, REMOTE, ALL.
The following ports are assigned to these:

WWW HTTP(80) +HTTPS(443)
FTP FTP(21)
SSH SSH(22), SSH(1022)
POPIMAP POP3(110), SPOP3(995), IMAP(143), SIMAP(993), MSA(587)
REMOTE VNC (TCP/5900-5910), pcAnywhere(TCP/5631, UDP/5632), RDP(TCP/3389)
ALL All Ports (UDP+TCP)

Combinations of these groups are also possible (e.g. WWW and SSH). If other services than those specified are required, 'ALL' must be selected.
NOTE: With the ALL attribute, the basic protection (by the generally blocked ports) is maintained!

Please note that these computers must be maintained with special care. Measures must also be taken to protect the server in accordance with IT security standards (such as the use of software firewalls, virus scanners, etc.)

In principle, the operation of access points by institutes in the campus area of the TU Vienna or in the TUnet is not permitted. In special cases, please contact the Hardware Department of the Communications Department (see: "other requests") for clarification of a possible installation location and settings.

The operation of unregistered access points by institutes is a violation of the "Acceptable Use Policy for the Services of TUnet" !

If an access point is operated at the TU or via the TUnet infrastructure in consultation with TU.it, the following information is required for correct registration of the wireless LAN access point:

Attributes :

*ss: Text | configured SSID at the access point
*pw: 50 mW | Transmission power in mW
*ch: 7 | set channel at the access point
*an: Omnidirectional radiator | Description of the antenna characteristics (text e.g. club)

List of protocols supported by this computer:

  •     IP TCP/IP Protocol
  •     DEC4 DECnet Phase IV
  •     LAT DEC Local Area Transport (for terminal servers)
  •     ATK Apple Talk
  •     IPX Novell IPX/SPX

if: Description Interface

Required for new registration !!!

short verbal description of the interface, e.g. SMC Ethercard or OnBoard

If the computer has several interfaces, several such lines are necessary, whereby the order of the interfaces must be the same as for *na: MAC.

na: IP,128.130.xxx.xxx,nnnn.ddd.@

Necessary for new registration for IP protocol!

IP address and name of the computer or interface
Please note that several addresses cannot be used for technical reasons. If the host has several interfaces, each interface must be described in a block, see example 2 (above)

na: DEC4,51.xxx,nnnn

DECnet Phase IV node number and name. Only required for computers with DECnet protocol. nnnn is usually the same as the computer name (*na: NA,,). DECnet allows names with a maximum of 6 characters. Computers at the TU Wien must start with E, the next two characters indicate the institute.
xxx is the DECnet node number within Area 51 of the TU Wien. Usually assigned by the TU.it

na: MAC,xx-xx-xx-yy-yy-yy

Absolutely necessary for new registration!

IEEE MAC address. (Node-address, HW-address, ...)
Reading the hardware address (*na: MAC) of the network card. This address has the following format: XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX (hexadecimal) (always specify with "-", do not use ":") The entire address is defined in the hardware of the network interface of your computer and is unique worldwide.
It can be determined with the documentation of the hardware or by means of suitable software on the registered computer.
There are also the following possibilities: To find out this address, proceed as follows :

  • Win9X with the command "winipcfg (command prompt)
  • WinNT with the command "ipconfig /all" (command prompt)
  • LINUX systems with the command "ifconfig -a
    (with 'ipconfig -a|tr : -' the ":" are replaced by "-")
  • UNIX systems: On some systems, "ifconfig -a" works
    An alternative method is to send a ping to your own computer and then use "arp -a" to find your hardware address (with 'ipconfig -a|tr : -' or 'arp -a|tr : -' the ":" is replaced by "-").
  • APPLE systems:

        1. set user mode to extended functions (can be found under Edit->User mode)
        2. the address is displayed under Control Panels -> TCP/IP -> Info

  • For systems using the DECnet protocol, the 'logical' MAC address is also required.
    Format is AA-00-04-00-xx-xx, where xx-xx is derived from the DECnet Node-ID
    is calculated.

cn: typ,socket

Required for new registration !!!

How and where is the computer connected.
The following designations are common:

TP room code number Twisted pair cabling (e.g. TP-DB02O20-4) Sockets Labeling : 3 TP-DB02O20 4 If you want to use the left socket, the designation is as follows: TP-DB02020-3

TP room code number letter Twisted pair cabling (e.g. TP-DB02O20-4-B) Sockets Labeling : A TP-DB02O20-4 B If you want to use the left socket, the designation is as follows: TP-DB02O20-4-A (In this case two sockets are supplied with one cable (two pairs of wires each). 10MBit/s and 100MBit/s are supported). TP sockets must first be activated in a separate ticket before they can be used: Activation and configuration of TP sockets For cost reasons, the sockets are only connected to the network when required. (Patch cable to the switch is plugged in)

TE building code number Thinwire cabling (e.g. TE-EA-5)

TR building code number
Transceiver
Number = consecutive repeater number
