About the Network Registration System
Before you can connect your computer to the campus network, you must register certain information about it so that it can be identified and assigned an IP address. In some cases, you need only register your machine. If you will be using a data outlet for your connection, the outlet to which you will connect may need to be activated as well.
If you are a business administrator or if you support computers for a department or workgroup, you use this system to register machines and data outlets for yourself. Other people, such as a business administrator, a computing support person for your department, or someone else that you designate may also have access to view and or change your machine and outlet registrations.
If you are a business administrator or if you support computers for a department or workgroup, you can use this system to administrate machines for the people you support as well as your own machines and outlets.
There really is no relationship between machines and outlets except that if a machine is to be connected to an outlet, the outlet must be activated.
However, a machine's registration is specific to a subnet. No network connection will be possible if the computer is connected to a data outlet (even an active one) outside the subnet in which the machine is registered.
