In order to provide a more secure envoirment onÂ ResNet, we are introducing some new security requirements.
We have always asked for users of ResNet to be configured to get their IP address automatically. This is now being enforced by the new network equipment that we installed recently.
This means that users will not be able to use static ip addresses on ResNet. All computers or routers etc connected to ResNet must be configured to use dhcp.
If you think that you are being affected by these changes, make sure that you reboot your computer before contacting the helpdesk.
Instructions on configuring your computer to use dhcp can be found in this pdf:
