Network and Computing Policies
Before setting up your laptop or using the computer lab in the Zimmerman Law Library, you should read and understand the University of Dayton's policies in the following categories:
Fair and Acceptable Use Policy
The University of Dayton has a policy against any illegal file sharing. The University of Dayton School of Law has its own policy regarding this issue that prohibits UDSL students from having any Peer-to-Peer software on their computers, as P2P software supports illegal file-sharing. In order to remove the software, we require your hard drive be erased and restored using the computer manufacturer's recovery process.Top
Your computer must have virus protection software and an updated virus definition file to access the UD network. UD requires Symantec Endpoint Protection which is available from UDit's software webpage. Automatic virus definition updates are setup during the installation process. Make sure you remove any other type of antivirus software before you install Symantec Endpoint.Top
Windows Critical Updates
Windows periodically provides updates for its software that are vital to ensuring the security of your computer. Therefore, the University of Dayton provides Windows Update Service for all computers on its network. You may experience connection problems when logging into the network if your version of Windows is not up to date. In some cases, the Cisco Clean Access login is unavailable.Top
Connecting to UDwireless
When you attempt to use your browser, the Cisco Clean Access agent will prompt you to log in using your university username and password. Your computer is then inspected for the latest Windows and Symantec Endpoint Protection updates. If current, you are granted full access to the network and the Internet. If your computer is not up-to-date, you will be prompted to address the issue and be allowed 90-minute access.
To get on the UDwireless network, you will need the Cisco NAC agent installed on your system:Top
