Registring a Mac PC on the college network
The college requires that all computers connected to the college network are kept up-to-date with both operating system security patches and an anti-virus product to help protect all network users. To ensure this policy is adhered an additional check is made during the registration process described below.
To begin registration connect your PC to the college network either via an ethernet cable or by connecting to the JESU-WLAN wireless network (the passphrase for this network was included in your Account Details letter)
