The following conferences have a wiki:
The gateway offers Network Time Protocol service. Direct your
ntp client at 184.108.40.206 for updates to local conference time.
Our larger conferences (Security, LISA, and ATC) usually have a Terminal
Room which provides a few *NIX boxes for those without laptops. Those with
laptops and drained batteries will appreciate the tables with ethernet
connections and power. Occasionally Real Work gets done in the Terminal
There is usually an HP LaserJet printer in the Terminal Room. It can be reached at 220.127.116.11 or by direct parallel port connection. Be sure to note the closing hours
of the Terminal Room and print your boarding passes early.
The gateway is also a transparent web and ftp proxy.
The USENIX confernece network is provided to facilitate the free exchange of
ideas with other attendees and colleagues unable to attend. It is expected
that attendees will respect each other's ability to do so and not
intentionally disrupt the network. Further:
The wired and wireless networks provided by USENIX at this conference
are for the use of conference attendees only, subject to the following conditions:
- USENIX may monitor these networks
- Any illicit or intrusive use of the network, including packet sniffing, is expressly forbidden
- The wireless network is open and insecure. USENIX strongly recommends that all users encrypt their transmissions. Users are solely responsible for the security of their passwords and data.
The Conference Network is not secure. Use of encryption is highly recommended.
The Conference Network employs minimal filtering to ensure that the broadest range of applications have their requisite ports available. Packets from non-routable networks are denied egress and ingress as are packets with originating IPs on our inside network arriving on our external network interface.
Presently Network Address Translation is used to provide access to more users than we have static routable IPs. If we have an excess of static routable IPs available we can allocate them to users on the internal network for good cause, e.g. a vpn client that does not work through NAT.
Upon request Static IP assignments are available. Static IPs are not routed differently than those assigned by DHCP.
|External NAT'd IP(s)
|| Not yet available
At times the Conference Network will become oversubscribed. At those time
traffic with desination ports or protocols commonly associated with encrypted
traffic is prioritized. DNS queries are also given priority and dedicated
bandwidth. Use of high bandwidth applications during peak usage times is
discouraged but not usually regulated. Attendees using high bandwidth
applications may find their bandwidth limited.
