This page describes the physical layout of network ports in West Village H. It is provided for your convenience in case you need to request a network change in your office (so that you can describe the port in question) or in case you are unsure where to connect a given computer.
Wired network access in West Village H is available via ports (in groups of six) which can be found in plastic faceplates along the walls. We call these groupings of six ports "sixpacks." A six pack looks like this:
The ports are named as follows:
eg: The bottom-rightmost port in the ninth sixpack in room 102 of building West Village H would be identified as 102-WVH-9F, and the upper-leftmost port in the first sixpack in room 400 of building West Village H would be identified as 400-WVH-1A. The sixpack label (everything but the port letter) always appears at the top of the sixpack. The individual ports are not labeled.
In a standard sixpack, each port has an assigned role:
- A: Telephone (hardwired, can't be changed)
- B: NUNET network (hardwired, can't be changed)
- C: Khoury: Disabled by default, can be configured as needed
- D: Khoury: Disabled by default, can be configured as needed
- E: Khoury: Disabled by default, can be configured as needed
- F: Khoury: Disabled by default, can be configured as needed
Using ports and Requesting a port change
Unused ports will be turned off by default and will require a request to be turned on.
Please contact systems, email@example.com, with any port change requests. Please include:
- The port you are plugging into (with the above naming convention)
- The MAC address for the device you are plugging in
- Any specific requests/configurations you will need
