Network Registration

Using and Managing NetReg

The NetReg system builds a dynamic table of workstation addresses and the user who registered it. This ensures that there is a person that can be quickly contacted in the event that there are issues with this workstation on the network.

Registrations are extended and verified every time a user logs into the Clemson network. If a user is away from campus and does not log in to the Clemson network for one year, the registration will expire and the user will have to register again.

Users can add and delete their registrations via the web.

NetReg also serves as the base for the DHCP and IP database systems for managing IP address assignment.

How to register your computer on the Clemson network:

  1. Open a Web browser (Netscape, Internet Explorer, Firefox). You will automatically be sent to the registration page.
  2. Enter your Clemson username and password.
  3. Add information about this registration (type of computer, location, etc.)
  4. Read the acceptable use policy and click on "Accept" to complete the registration.
  5. Reboot your computer.
  6. You should now have access to the Clemson network!

Contact the Support Center at 656-3494 if you have any problems registering your computer.

Make sure your Web browser supports 128-bit encryption or you will have difficulty accessing NetReg.
