This guidebook will help you explore what is available and answer some of your questions.
ICD provides access to computers, printers in study spaces, networks and also supports online services, including Inha
Information System (INS), Help Desk portal, and eClass, the learning management system. We are continually working to
improve these services and in the coming years we plan to introduce more.
As a student, you will have access to some of the best software and services. Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Web App

account anytime, anywhere, on the go. You can also find out about student life at IUT by visiting our Student Blogs. We
also plan to introduce Moodle for course management.
We continually look to improve our services and listen to what you have to say. For example, based on feedback from
students we have focused on improving the Internet bandwidth as well as the coverage of our wireless service. Now
Internet bandwidth has doubled, whereas wireless network now covers the whole IUT campus.

Complexity requirements are enforced when passwords are changed or created.
4.2.3. Password history
Our system stores the history of your last two (2) passwords used. Hence, you are required to use a unique new password
once your old password has expired, i.e. your new password must be different from your old passwords and unique. This
is done in order to enhance security by ensuring that old passwords are not reused continually. You can reuse one of your

4.3.2. Wi-Fi Internet access using Captive Portal
In order to minimize device and OS compatibility issues when accessing university wireless network, as well as to ensure
efficient bandwidth sharing policy, maintain network security and make the authentication process as convenient as
possible for BYOD (bring your own device), we have dropped the WPA2 Enterprise security protocol and went for the open
wireless SSID. Which means, you do not have to provide any credentials when connecting to wireless network SSID.
Captive portal will be used for authentication instead.
Captive portal is the name of the technology, which uses web-based authentication to allow you to access the Internet.
Whenever you connect to university wireless network, you will be prompted to provide your username and password on
a special web authentication page.
How it works
There are 2 SSIDs – IUT and IUTS. As the first step, you connect to one of them.
IUT is an open SSID and can be used by everyone for Internet access – students, staff, faculty, as well as guests (BYOD).
IUTS, on the other hand, requires wireless authentication and is meant for use on university owned Microsoft Windows
Active Directory (AD) domain mobile devices (laptops, tablets, etc.) by faculty and staff.
Second step: After you connect to one of the above SSIDs, depending on the mobile device type, Captive Portal web
authentication page will open automatically.
If not, you will be required to manually open your browser and enter a URL (website) for the authentication page to show
Follow these steps:
• Connect to IUT or IUTS
• Open any browser and type a URL (website). Auth. page will appear, as shown below.
• Enter your university ID and password (not INS or eClass password)
• Now you are connected!
• NOTE 1: You will be logged out after 15 minutes of inactivity.
• NOTE 2: Session expires after 7 hours

4.4.4. Mailing lists
As a faculty and staff member, you’re automatically put on some Microsoft Exchange mailing lists based on your faculty

A mailing list is a single email address that is associated with multiple recipients. It can be used by an individual or an
organization to send one email that is received by all subscribed.

4.6. Network Drives
4.6.1. Drive Information
Local storage drives: Once logged onto office computer, you have access to the local storage drives on the
computer. Local drives are usually reserved with the lower letters of the alphabet (a, b, c, d, e, etc.) Documents may be
saved on the local storage drives. Be aware there are no automatic backups for data stored on a local drive. Backups are
the sole responsibility of the person saving the documents there. Keep in mind if your hard drive crashes, the data may be
unrecoverable. You should always back up your files onto removal storage devices e.g. flash drives (memory sticks) or
Network storage drives: Each faculty and staff has access to certain network drives when logged onto office
computer. They are accessible even if logged on from a different computer. Every faculty and staff member gets 1000MB
file storage space on the network. When you log on to a computer, the ‘V’ drive becomes your file store on the network.
Network drives are automatically backed up nightly and have file snapshots taken twice daily, so there is a large
advantage to placing documents on a network drive. See network drives available described in the section below.
4.6.2. Storing Confidential Information
Any files that contain confidential data should be stored on personal (V) drive. Data that contains sensitive information
should not be stored on the public drives (P) meant for storing temporary data. Additionally, all faculty and staff have
access to the (W) drive, which stores faculty and departmental data.
4.6.3. Access Network Drives From Any Location
Network drives are currently accessible only from University network. We are working to implement a convenient and
secure method for accessing your files over the web from remote locations. You will be notified when it’s available.
4.6.4. Drives Available
When logged into your computer, network drives can be accessed by double clicking on the "My Computer" icon on the

permissions based on their department and faculty positions
Faculty/staff personal network drive - 1000MB of storage per user
Network drive for storing temporary data and temporary file transfers
Reminder - No file storage is absolutely secure. You are always responsible for backing up your files and maintaining your personal storage space.
4.6.5. Understanding your Personal (V) Drive
The V drive has an allotted 1000MB for faculty and staff.
No one else will be able to access your files.

4.6.6. Saving files to your V drive
Create your document and then click on File - Save as. Click the drop down button next to Save in - Choose the V drive.
Enter a file name and save.
4.6.7. Snapshot (Shadow Copy) - Documents Stored on Personal (V) Drive
Snapshots (shadow copies) of your network files are available on your Windows desktop computer.
Snapshots are created of documents saved on network at 6 am & noon daily.
The server creates up to 64 snapshot copies, subject to available disk space, which gives lots of opportunities to
pull from older versions!
Snapshots are only done on documents saved on the network drives. Documents saved locally (C or D drive) will
NOT have snapshots available!
4.6.8. Retrieving Previous Version of Documents stored on V drive
Right mouse click on the Start button.
Choose Explore.
Locate your V drive or folder on V drive.
Right click on V drive or folder on V drive. Choose Properties.
Choose tab "Previous Versions"
You will see previous versions available.
Highlight the folder or document and choose View or Copy. Be extremely cautious using "Restore" - you could accidentally
restore an entire folder and overwrite documents you didn't intend to overwrite.
If a document had been accidentally deleted, right click on the folder (or drive) it was stored in before deletion to find it.
Look at the previous versions and you should easily be able to find your deleted document. Open it and save in location
you desire.
4.7. Printing
ICD maintains printers and Multifunctional Devices (MFDs) which offer printing, copying and scanning.
Once you join the University, a USB-connected local printer or in most cases, a network printer is made available to you at
