Physics Network Integration Chris Hunter
Physics network team Chris Hunter : Network Manager David Newton : Network Support Technician Room DWB 663 Phone
Network Sockets & Concentration Points 16 network concentration points (NCPs) in the Denys Wilkinson Building alone. Available Switch ports 2290 Approx. 59.2% active Level 2 NCP hub of the Physics network with 1Gb fibre connections going to each of the Physics buildings.
Physics Wireless Network Currently 19 x g 56Mbps wireless access points in the DWB plus a couple of n 300Mbps – Clients connected to the Physics_M wireless network are part of the x subnet, currently WEP encryption only. – 802.1x authentication should be coming soon using Physics network credentials. – Register for wireless network access with Physics Network credentials at
OUCS wireless network OWL-VISITOR and OWL-VPN also available, via the OWL ssid. Eduroam now also available, connect using your Remote Access Account, different from your SSO or Nexus account Details about both OWL & Eduroam at
Access to Physics Services from the un- trusted subnet or remotely Virtual Private Network (VPN) – vpn.physics.ox.ac.uk works with Microsoft, Linux and OSX clients, uses Physics authentication domain help at – Oxford University Computing Service (OUCS) have VPN service, does need specific client installed details at
Network Security Connecting unmanaged systems to the Physics Network – MAC address registration is needed before gaining any network connection for laptops please register at – x.x un-trusted subnet – Is your laptop up to date? Anti Virus / spyware Fully patched OS Connecting from outside of Physics – SMB blocked, no connection to windows files – MAPI access to Exchange Server blocked – SMTP blocked
Network Security Exchange Server protocols not blocked – IMAP – Authenticated SMTP is available using mail.physics.ox.ac.uk, PHYSICS authentication domain credentials are needed to use the service Other protocols – web access – RPC over HTTPS
Network Security Sophos Anti Virus Software – Updates, out of date AV is no use – Download Sophos for personal laptops running:- Sophos for XP, Vista and Windows7 at Linux at Sophos v7.0.5 for MAC OSX 10.4/10.5/10.6 at Hoping to setup Network Access Control (NAC) onto our network
Network Backbone Connection Physics connection presently 1Gbps Campus connection to Super Janet currently at 2 x 10Gbps.
Access to Physics Services from the un- trusted subnet or remotely Exchange web access https://mail.physics.ox.ac.uk HTTPS-RPC proxy service is available with Outlook Exchange 2010 access various client with Imap access https://www.physics.ox.ac.uk/IT/ /Exchange/2010/Exchange2010.htm https://www.physics.ox.ac.uk/it/ / system/imap Webdav via browser or windows network places https://winfe.physics.ox.ac.uk/home/ connects to your windows H drive. https://winfe.physics.ox.ac.uk/home/ (Windows Only) Open `My Network Places` and click on `add a network place Sftp + SSH Winscp3 available on self service (windows desktop systems)
Access to Physics Services from the un- trusted subnet or remotely Printing from a Windows Laptop not in the Physics domain. – ng.htm ng.htm MAC Printing –
Access to Physics Services from the un- trusted subnet or remotely Windows terminal server Termservqc – Remote Desktop Client (MS & MAC OSX), possible to connect to local disks, printers and serial ports (not possible to connect serial ports in OSX). – Rdesktop on Linux systems, rdesktop, more for people without Windows desktop – Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 will allow remote access via terminal services
