  • Provide a stable IT infrastructure for the IoP
    • Network facilities & wireless access, connecting to the UK Academic Network & to the Internet
    • Public Access workstations (~80) in the Library, rooms M2.20 and around the campus

    • Network file services for the secure storage of data.

structure of it service provision
Structure of IT Service Provision
  • IoP IT Services
    • Provides services for all staff and students on IoP campus
    • Students ‘treated as staff’
  • KCL ISS IT Services
    • Provides services for students (mainly) on all other KCL campuses
    • Differential provision between staff and students (students’ advantage)
    • Services under development and change
it structure ii
IT Structure II
  • Each IT service has its own servers, email, and software
  • Why?
    • History – IoP only recently part of KCL
    • IoP has had and still needs a centralised staff IT service
  • Therefore IoP students get
    • Both College and IoP logon accounts
    • Two potential email addresses
    • Two potential filestores
  • Confusing??
  • If your home campus is the De Crespigny Park site, then use the IoP logon and email by preference
  • If your home campus is Guy’s or other parts of KCL, use the KCL ISS PAWS logon by preference. The IoP webmail service is probably the quickest for email.
  • When you visit another campus to your own, use the appropriate logon (e.g. if an IoP based user visits Guys site use the KCL logon) but continue to use your normal email via the web interface
  • All - use KCL logon for MyKCL student records portal
  • Ask for guidance if confused!
email services
Email Services
  • IoP runs Microsoft Exchange 2003 with Outlook 2003
  • IoP also has Outlook Web Access
  • KCL runs a UNIX based email service
  • At the moment, for new students, the KCL email is set up to forward to the IoP email address
  • IoP/KCL will migrate to Exchange 2003 over the year.
  • Which to use?
  • IoP Email has a global address book for IoP only
  • Circulars – in public folders - see
how is access given
How is access given?
  • For all students, your accounts have been automatically generated. Pickup at enrolment.
  • In return, you receive an user identifier and password for both IoP and KCL ISS, also an ATHENS registration
  • Learn how to logon to a public Windows XP workstation, or via a computer provided by your department
  • Use software provided, storing data on drive U:
  • If training is needed, then
    • ‘LunchBytes’ induction courses (45 minutes)
    • Also check if training part of course
    • See web or get in touch with Helpdesk x0539
passwords and logon identifiers
Passwords and Logon Identifiers
  • Given at enrolment – please do not lose them
  • Although you have one logon, in fact there are several systems each with separate passwords. Only the logon identifier has been created as the same.
  • Changing passwords on one will not change them on other systems
  • Keep you logon and password secret – do NOT share them
  • We do monitor Athens and other systems to check inappropriate sharing
  • Ask if you need help!
