“I need a new PC…” Please note that EPS IT Support do NOT supply Research Workers with a new PC… Instead it is the responsibility of your ACADEMIC SUPERVISOR to do this! (and some do and some don’t … !)
Different EPS IT Support levels EPS Main Staff network:- Uses Netware 6.5 to deliver software to the users desktop No Admin rights any Specialist Software must be installed by EPS IT Staff…
Different EPS IT Support levels EPS Research Group network(s):- Research PC user has full Admin rights… and is also responsible for installing software, looking after the PC etc. => gets less EPS IT support “with great power comes great responsibility!”
And finally … Please do NOT plug in your laptop or any other piece of IT kit into what looks like an unused network port… (e.g. in a research lab) Instead, please contact EPS IT Support Staff, so that we can advise you on what services you might require!
