Applications that require publicly accessible IP addresses
Due to the large number of devices on the wireless network, connected devices are no longer assigned publicly accessible IP addresses. The network uses the NAT protocol to distribute internal IP addresses. If you have applications that will not function through NAT, you may request a public IP address.
Requests to opt-out of NAT will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. To request a public address, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your EID and a description of your applications, operating systems and devices that do not work with NAT. Opt-outs will apply to all devices authenticated under your EID.
