Bradford Networks Campus Manager
What is Campus Manager?
Campus Manager helps secure the university network and ensure students, faculty, staff and guests at SOU have protected access to the SOU OpenNet and RES-NET. It is an automated registration process that takes just a few minutes to complete. Re-registation may be required on a periodic basis.
What are SOU OpenNet and RES-NET?
SOU OpenNet encompasses the wireless and wired network services available in common areas to SOU students, faculty, staff and guests. Users that have a SOU Network Account receive full access to the Internet and all SOU Information Systems. Guest users are limited to browsing the Internet and checking their e-mail and have bandwidth limits imposed.
SOU RES-NET offers identical services to students and their guests in the Residence Halls.
Supported Operating Systems
Automatic registration is supported for the following operating systems: Microsoft Windows 2000 or newer, Macintosh OS X or newer, and Unix/Linux. Campus Manager prevents network access by Windows 95/98/ME systems because Microsoft no longer releases security patches for these systems.
The automatic registration process begins when you access the SOU OpenNet or RES-NET from a wired or wireless connection. Registering your computer with the Campus Manager requires you to agree to the terms of the SOU Computing Resources Acceptable Use Policy.
PDAs, Smartphones, Game Consoles and personal networking equipment must be manually registered. See the "Manual Registration" section below for more information.
After your computer is registered you will be prompted to download and run the Client Security Agent (CSA). The CSA will check your computer for up-to-date anti-virus and anti-spyware protection and the latest operating system and security patches. Once you have satisfied all the security policies the security agent is removed from your computer.
A web page will notify you if your computer fails any of the security policies. For failed security policies that can be resolved on-line, Campus Manager will allow access to web sites for operating system, security, anti-virus or anti-spyware downloads and updates.
Manual registration is required for PDAs, Smartphones, Game Consoles and networking equipment such as Wireless Access Points and Cable/DSL Routers. Call the appropriate number at the bottom of this page to request manual registration. Guests may obtain assistance by working with their SOU host and the appropriate support group listed below.
The Client Security Agent process is not used for devices that are manually registered. If you have personal networking equipment, computers connected to your equipment may pass the security agent checks but network access is still prevented until your equipment is manually registered. Not all networking equipment can be properly configured for use on the SOU OpenNet or RES-NET. As a temporary solution you can disconnect your equipment and connect your computer directly to the network outlet.
