Connecting to the Wired Public Network
You must log in to the wired public network by opening a window in a Web browser. Attempting to access the network through an email client or other network application will not redirect you to the Authentication System. (If you are not redirected automatically from a Web page, please contact the ITS Help Desk.)
Note: Sponsored guests, your sponsor should have issued you a Guest ID and password so that you can log in to the network. If you are a guest at the university and need access to the Public Network, contact the conference coordinator or the department with which you will be working.
Complete the following steps to log in to the wired public network.
Make sure your Web browser is configured correctly:
Enable cookies for the PNA domain (pna.utexas.edu).
Disable any pop-up blocking utilities OR set your Web browser to allow pop-up windows for the PNA domain (pna.utexas.edu).
Connect to a Public Network Ethernet port with an Ethernet cable.
Open a Web browser. The browser automatically redirects to the login page.
Select the appropriate status of your computer (this affects your security):
Select I share this computer if you are using a shared computer, such as a laptop checked out from a library or an office computer to which multiple users have access.
Select I do not share this computer if you are using your personal computer or one to which only you have access.
Click Login. You are directed back to the Web page you tried to open, and the Popup Window opens in the background. Be sure to leave the Popup Window open. This ensures that your credentials are maintained and you continue to be authorized.
You can log in to only one computer at a time on the Public Network. If you attempt to log in to more than one computer, your last session will be terminated.
