Registering a Machine
A machine must be registered properly before it can establish a connection with the network. The following takes you through this process step-by-step.
To register a machine, click on [Register New Machine] on the Main page of the Network Registration System.
The first page displayed when registering a machine asks you where this machine will be used. You can specify the location in one of three ways:
By IP Range
Once you have identified the subnet location for your machine, the Machine Information page is displayed. You need to enter the information on this page so that your computer can be registered and enabled on the network.
Complete the following fields on this page (click on a field name for a description):
If you maintain machine registrations for other users, a Protections section will be displayed on the Machine Information page. Your user ID will be listed with Read and Write access checked by default. Any groups of which you are a member will also be listed with no access rights checked by default.
If you are registering this machine for another user, you might want to uncheck the Read and Write rights for yourself and, instead, give Read and Write access to the group of which you are a member. That way, your User ID will not be associated directly with the machine.
If you are registering the machine for another user, you might also want to edit the machine after you've registered it and add the user who will be using the machine to the protections list. See Setting Protections for more information.
When you have completed all fields on the Machine Information page, click on the Continue button to submit the registration request. If there are no problems with the values you entered, your registration request will be submitted and you should be able to access the network with the registered machine within two hours.
