|Internet access for participants|
During the FLoC period period, both HCØ and the Computer Science department (DIKU) will provide internet facilities during work hours for the participants, free of charge.
HCØ's wireless network
You can access two different wireless-network boxes at HCØ. One is situated in the registration area outside auditorium 1, the other is functioning in the E building above auditoriums 5 and 6.
The wireless network will assign IP numbers dynamically. IP numbers are translated back and forth through transit, so if you are planning on using Virtual Private Networks (VPN), you should make sure that your client accepts mangled IPs.
As a participant, you need an account on DIKUs system to use the internet facilities. You obtain an account by giving name "floc02" and password "floc02" at any publicly accessible terminal, after which you are asked to identify yourself by giving your registration number and your email address, as stated on your registration receipt.
DIKU has five terminal rooms publicly accessible.
When you log onto a terminal, you will be inside a firewall. To make a connection to a host outside the firewall, you will need to log onto one of the hosts that are connected to the outside world.
There are several areas at DIKU where you can plug your portable computer into a DHCP-operated connection.
How to read your emailYour options, in order of increasing difficulty, are
Setting up an SSH tunnel for getting POP email to a portable
If you have openssh or a similar command-line SSH client on your portable, run
ssh -N -L 22222:mypop.myuniversity.edu:110 \ firstname.lastname@example.org parallel with your mail client, and configure the mail client to use localhost port 110 as the POP server.
If you that doesn't work (i.e. your SSH client has no command-line interface or a different interface that the author of this walkthrough had in mind), instead log into ask.diku.dk or tyr.diku.dk and run
ssh -N -g -L 22222:mypop.myuniversity.edu:110 localhostthere while your mail client runs on the portable. Configure the mail client to use ask.diku.dk/tyr.diku.dk port 22222 as the POP server. Ssh may tell you that port 22222 is already in use; in that case select a different port at random and try again.
