Connecting to Slugnet

Before attempting to connect to Slugnet, you must disconnect yourself from the MIT network.

In the Walcott lounge, you can connect to Slugnet though the orange network cable in the spool or over wireless. There is also a 24 port switch in the control panel rack. This may be used but it is only 10 megabit. In the Goodale lounge, there is a 24 port switch in the Bemix rack and a white network cable by the Barco.

Set your computer to use DHCP. It is likely that your computer already uses DHCP, in which case you don't need to do anything.


An HP Laserjet 2100TN is can be accessed from Slugnet. It is shared with an HP Jetdirect card.


Go to Print & Fax under System Preferences and add a new printer. The dialog should be filled out as shown below. Juntonian-mac.png


If you figure out how to do this, please post how you did it.
