ICGEB is part of eduroam (education roaming), the world wide federation developed to grant the international research and education communities an easy and secure way to get internet connectivity.

eduroam allows researchers, students and staff to gain wireless internet connectivity, when visiting other scientific institutions that are eduroam members.

It is possible to connect to eduroam using the same credentials used in your home institution - everywhere.

ICGEB connects to eduroam through the GARR Consortium, which coordinates the service in Italy.

All eduroam users should connect to the wireless SSID: "eduroam".

To configure the connection to eduroam, ICGEB users should access intranet Computer Unit FAQ pages.

As with eduroam, users accessing ICGEB network resources must adhere to the Acceptable User Policy (AUP) in the GARR AUP.

The ICGEB network is protected by a rather strict firewall, "eduroam" users should check for the available ports, as listed below:
