Faculty and Staff connecting any non IT Operations issued computer, peripheral, and or other devices into any Ethernet network jack on the TMC campus is strictly prohibited. Due to malware such as viruses and trojan horses, this poses a security threat to the network and will result in your office network port being shut off. As a general rule, you should not be connecting/disconnecting your network cable or switching the jack where your PC network cable is plugged into without first consulting Computer Services.
IT Operations does not support the connection and or use of personally owned PCs, computer devices and peripherals on the TMC wireless network for faculty and staff. This includes personally owned desktops, notebooks, printers, scanners, tablets, Blackberry devices, iPhones, and other smart phones. All supported PCs, computer devices and or peripherals for faculty and staff use must be approved and purchased through IT Operations. There are no exceptions.
Faculty and staff may attempt on their own efforts to connect to the TMC wireless network with their personal notebook, tablet, or smartphone. However, they should be aware that they will not receive additional support by IT Operations, and face the possibility of losing wireless connectivity at home after connecting to the TMC wireless network due to possible conflicts in wireless configuration. IT Operations does not offer technical assistance to resolve home wireless issues.
Faculty and staff may choose to attach their personal tablet or smartphone to the TMC network, but with clear understanding that they will receive no technical support from IT Operations and be aware of the following stipulations:
