Questions and answers

Can I use peer-to-peer client software on the wired access connection (e.g. BitTorrent, Kazaa, eDonkey, and Gnutella)?

Using peer-to-peer software to exchange copyright materials is explicitly against the University's regulations on the use of computing facilities, and you have acknowledged that you accept those conditions as part of your registration to use the network. If you have legitimate reasons to use peer-to-peer software, you should seek help from the ITS Service desk, who will arrange an appointment for you with a senior member of ITS.
