University of Florida Internet


The University of Florida is their own ISP.

They use a system known as DHNet.

"netconfig" alone cannot solve the connecting issue.

I am running on a laptop with a working Ethernet port.

With 50,000 people a year, I pray there is one running Slackware on campus.

Are there any recommendations for Network managers to use for this ugly problem?

From the DHNet FAQ:

http://www.dhnet.ufl.edu/faq/

See the entry on 'compatible operating systems'. DHNet is simply running with PEAP authentication.
Since many places use PEAP because of hacks allowing WinDuhs to work with it, you may benefit from guides from other places, for example:

Also, have you asked their systems admins?

For a University that size, there is surely someone on the IT staff that knows Unix/Linux.
