Networks and Connectivity
Instant wireless access at participating institutions.
The Domain Name System (DNS) provides mapping of human-readable hostnames (e.g. www.uvm.edu) to IP addresses (e.g. 188.8.131.52).
GuestNet provides an easy way for visitors to UVM to gain access to wireless internet service, computer labs and SharePoint based web services.
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) provides dynamically assigned Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and other configuration data to computers and devices at UVM.
UVM is a member of Internet2 and has high speed connectivity to other research institutions on I2.
The Network Registration (NetReg) system provides wired Ethernet access control for the UVM network.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows your computer to make a private encrypted connection over the Internet to another private network. UVM's VPN enables remote users to securely access UVM resources as though they were on campus.
Throughout our campus, the primary wireless Service Set Identifier (SSID) is listed as UVM. This network provides wireless access to students, faculty, and staff. A UVM Guest network is also available for sponsored and self-sponsored visitors. Self-sponsored guest accounts receive reduced bandwidth and may also restrict the use of some protocols.
