The goal of the Student Network Access Protection (SNAP) is to create a safe and secure network environment for the students in the Residence Halls by enforcing:
Step 1. Open a web browser* and go to a web site other than Mason's (for example,www.google.com). You should see the page shown in Pic. 1 below.
* Windows users need to use Internet Explorer (IE); Mac users need to use Safari 2.0.4 or above with JVM (Java Virtual Machine) 1.5.0_06 (refer to Appendix A).
If you see a page with the error message “Captive Portal: Redirect Page,” you need to clear the cache from the browser (Pic. 2 shows IE). To clear your cache:
Step 2. Click on the Students button, you should see the following page (Pic. 3).
Step 3. Type in your e-mail username and password and click login. You should see the following page (Pic. 4).
Step 4. Connected
Depending on the results of Host Checker, you will see one of the following pages. Pic. 7 shows a computer with limited access, and Pic. 8 shows a computer that passed. If there is a problem, the page will show the results of the Host Checker, provide resources to fix the problem, and show information about granted network resources.
If you see the page above, it means your computer will have limited network access (see Note below). The reason could be:
You can follow the links provided on this page to upgrade your system so your computer can pass the next time you login.
(Note:Limited network access could include shorter session times and blocked access to some Internet addresses. As of Fall 2008, limited-access users have shorter session times (users will need to re-login after 1 hour), and SSH and Telnet are not allowed. Network Engineering may apply more constraints when necessary.)
If you see the page above (Pic. 8), it means your computer has passed and you have full network access, based on your group.
