The SLAC Visitor Network
Last updated: February 28, 2014

The visitor network is a SLAC owned network (a subnet of SLAC owned IP addresses) which is outside the SLAC network firewall. Users connected to it are treated as if they were on any commercial or public ISP and will be assigned, via DHCP, a 198.129.n.n IP address. Because you are outside the firewall  you should consider your connection very insecure. It is the responsibility of users of the Visitor network to protect their communications, e.g. by using a Virtual Private Network (VPN).

The visitor network is meant for light casual use and to provide an easy network connection for SLAC visitors, collaborators, conference/meeting attendees, vendor demonstration etc. Do not place mission critical applications on the Visitor network.
