    The event network will be the same as last Bakeathon, an unswitched 100Mbps UTP ethernet, with plenty of rj-45 jacks to go around. Please bring your own cable, 3-6 ft (1-2 m). We will have extra hubs and switches available in case of special requirements. IP addresses will be real (no NAT) but will be behind a firewall that lets connections out but not in. There will be both static and dhcp addresses available. Names will be in the domain. If you have special requirements for the firewall, please let us know ahead of time. CITI's wireless network is also available for generic laptop use. (The WEP key is posted inside CITI.)

    Kerberos and LDAP Services

    CITI will provide a Kerberos v5 cell, and an LDAP service.
