Internet and Network connections

Tyndale House provides free access to the web and other online facilities. Our connection is often slow, and we have plans to install a 1G optical cable. You may use this connection for academic and non-commercial personal surfing or email, but not for radio or video streaming (ie internet radio or video) because this slows down the connection for everyone else, and because we are charged by the amount of data we download.

Wireless connection - free ticket from the Front Office

Wired connection - IP number from Librarian or IT staff
(you can connect yourself temporarily using the instructions below)

Online Backup - good internet services


Wireless connection

Two wireless services are freely available through Tyndale House

Lapwing - requires an ID & Password each day.

- Members of the University can use their Raven ID and password

- Day Visitors can get a one-day ticket from the Front Office. Longer term users can be issued with a ticket of up to 3-months.

Eduroam - requires a one-time signin and works in universities throughout Europe.
- first get your Eduroam Tokens then click on your type of computer here for instructions.

 


Wired connection

Every desk has a network cable. To connect yourself, do the following:

In a PC: Click on Start: Control Panels: Network Connections: Local Area Connection: Properties:
-  Highlight "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" and click "Properties", then put in the numbers below:
In a Mac: Click on System Preferences: Network: Ethernet: Configure "Manually", then put in these numbers:

IP (use the number you have been give or use 193.60.91.108 or 193.60.91.109 temporarily till you have your own number)
Subnet 255.255.255.0
Gateway 193.60.91.62
DNS 131.111.12.20
131.111.8.42

If you use Outlook, Eudora or another mail program which downloads mail, you will need a local SMTP address.
Use PPSW.cam.ac.uk
If you use web mail such as Yahoo or GMail, you won't need this.

 


Online Backup

We no longer provide online backup because there are many good free services.

Especially good:

Dropbox or SugarSync - files stay on your computer and are backed-up automatically, but can also be accessed on other computers you designate, or via the web. 2G free (that's about 1000 theses!)

Online backup - lots of services, some offering lots of free space. See comparisons here and here and here.
