The  Hutchison/MRC Research Centre offers eduroam (JANET Roaming Service) at Tier 2, supporting WPA-TKIP and WPA2-AES with private IP addresses using NAT and no IPv6 support.

Visitors need to make sure that they arrive with their wireless configuration set up (or that they can do so by contacting their home institution). Note that you are bound by your home organisation’s AUP (Acceptable Use Policy), the JANET AUP and Cambridge University’s, and that breach of AUP could result in disciplinary procedures at your home site.

Note  We use internet content filtering and block access to websites which are deemed of a unsuitable nature. The firewall has active IPS (Intrusion Prevention System) and active Antivirus scanning of supported protocols running, we also have application control enabled to block unsuitable application.

All network activity is fully logged and monitored for unsuitable use.

Note that it is not possible to connect to eduroam using an Amazon Kindle.

The following ports are allowed out through our stateful firewall which will allow the majority of internet applications to function normally.

  • IPv6 Tunnel Broker NAT traversal: UDP/3653;TCP/3653 egress and established.
  • IPSec NAT traversal: UDP/4500 egress and established.
