Computer Centre provides computational facilities to all users
in the Institute. All Registered students, staff and faculty
from all Departments, Sections,Centres in the campus can obtain
accounts from CC. CC provides electronic mail, world wide web,
DNS, FTP and other services.
Computer Centre (CC) is
responsible for the core NIT Hamirpur network (includes
Internet/intranet facilities: email, web etc).
CC will provide connectivity
to each Department, to the gigabit backbone, and also the
necessary IP addresses, proxies, email relays etc.
The operation of the network
within each Department is the sole responsibility of the
Department (Head & OIC Departmental computer LAB) CC will
only play an advisory role.
If a Department network
“misbehaves” and causes problems for any other department or
the entire campus, or disrupts services, CC will notify same
to the concerned Head and disconnect the Department from the
core network until the problem is fixed satisfactorily.
To minimize the problem of
disconnection, Departments will separate their network into
2 sub-networks (one for Windows and one for Linux/Unix).
This will allow CC to turn off only the offending subnet in
case of virus/worm attacks.
Use of pirated/illegal
software is not acceptable. It is the responsibility of the
Departments (Heads) to ensure compliance.
