Accessing services from Laptops

Connecting to the eduroam or MATHS networks

Please refer to this page to find out how to connect your machine to a wireless network (eduroam or MATHS).

eduroam network

This is a wireless network used in many places around the university and other universities.

See the remote access to IT services page which lists different methods of remotely accessing different services.

You can also connect to departmental printers from outside the department by following the relevant print configuration instructions.

MATHS network

This network is purely within the department so less flexible than eduroam if moving around but may provide additional access to maths specific services although the aim is to make as many services available as possible regardless of the network connection. You may also find it useful to see the remote access to IT services page which lists different methods of remotely accessing different services.

MATHS Untrusted subnet restrictions

Any personal equipment that requires traffic to be routed using the MATHS departmental IP network is considered untrusted and as such may only be connected if the owner has an active computer account and uses an authenticated connection as per the connection instructions for the MATHS network (also see the IT policy). Once connected, the equipment will be on a separate network with specific traffic routing policies.

In addition when connecting with a windows machine we offer:

  • \\print0.maths.ox.ac.uk\ - Serving network printers
  • \\mi.maths.ox.ac.uk\ - Serving connections to your home directory.

For details of how to connect to printers see the printing FAQs.
