Computing

We have created an SSID called "LIGO-Conference". Please contact LIGO Computing support for login/password.

To access the network, attendees should connect to the above SSID. Once they open a web browser and try to connect to a site, they will be directed to a login screen. If they enter the username and password and accept the AUP, they will then be redirected back to the originally requested site. Other network services will also be enabled after they accept the AUP.

Attendees that have not registered their MAC address will need to use the Caltech Guest SSID. Note that it is limited to the following services: HTTP, HTTPS, SSH and VPN. There will be a limited number of wired connections for the F2F and some of the breakout sessions. There will not be any wired access for the plenary sessions.

Please make sure your computer is up to date on patches and other related security software.
