Computing Setup in SLAC Conference Rooms

14 August 2001

SLAC Home Conference Computing FAQ SLAC Conference Management

 


Orange Room

Overhead Projector:

The Proxima overhead projector will take input from either the Orange Room workstation or a laptop.  Just toggle the Belkin box switch to go from one input to the other.

To project talks stored on a floppy disk file, use the workstation in the Orange Room.
To project talks directly from a laptop, hook up to the Belkin switch box.  

Network:

Those who come with laptops and need network, just plug into the hub under the table (white network cables hanging from the hub).  These are configured for anonymous DHCP on the 'Visitor Network'.  Just plug in, and if the laptop is configured for DHCP it will get a network address.

Instructions for configuring DHCP for different operating systems (NT, Windows 9x, UNIX) are at the bottom of this page

There is an additional 'Visitor Network' tap on the wall below the white screen (marked as such).

The other network taps are for regular SLAC Network, and need registration to get a network address assignment (DHCP or fixed).


Windows NT Workstation in the Orange Room

This is a regular SLAC Windows NT workstation, and needs SLAC NT account for login.  It has access to regular printers on the SLAC network.


Sharing Files

Easiest method is once laptops are networked, e-mail the file as an attachment.

Printing

Currently, there is no setup for laptops on the 'Visitor Network' to print.  Files can be printed on the Windows NT Workstation in the Orange Room, or e-mailed to someone at SLAC with printer connection.  The reason is that the printers hooked up to the Windows NT network at SLAC do not accept such anonymous connections.


SLAC Auditorium and Lobby

Wireless networking is set up in SLAC Auditorium, and in the SLAC Auditorium Lobby.   Both the wireless network and the regular network taps in these rooms are on the Visitor Network.
