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.


Printing

An HP Laserjet 2100TN is can be accessed from Slugnet. It is shared with an HP Jetdirect card on port 9100. If you are on the internal network use juntonian.bemix as the address. If you are on the MIT network, use bemix.mit.edu. Printing might be restricted to east parallel (18.238.x.x) IP addresses.

Linux

Ubuntu

Click the system menu. Select Administration then printing. Double click on Add Printer then fill out the dialog boxes as shown below. Juntonian-ubuntu-1.png

If you are on the MIT network, replace "juntonian.bemix" with "bemix.mit.edu"

Windows

Add a local printer on a standard TCP/IP port. Enter juntonian.bemix as the IP address.

My-junt

My-junt stores the music for bemix. There are two samba shares on the internal network, music and uploads. Music is the central music repository. Uploads is where you put music you want to make availible to bemix. Follow the directions below to use my-junt.bemix. The username is bemix and the password is the top work on the pipe in the corner of the Walcott lounge.

Linux

Create the directories /mnt/my-junt/music and /mnt/my-junt/uploads. As root, enter these two commands

mount -t smbfs //my-junt.bemix/music /mnt/my-junt/music -o username=bemix,password=[the password]
mount -t smbfs //my-junt.bemix/uploads /mnt/my-junt/uploads -o username=bemix,password=[the password]

Mac

Go to Finder and click Connect to Server in the Go menu. For the server address enter smb://my-junt.bemix;bemix@my-junt/music. Repeat the process with smb://my-junt.bemix;bemix@my-junt/uploads.

Windows

Open any folder and type \\my-junt.bemix\music in the address bar. Open another folder and type \\my-junt.bemix\uploads.

Note: we have had some trouble connecting to my-junt on a windows computer.
