Network and Terminal Room Information
San Francisco, CA March 2009

	-=- Terminal Room -=-
The Terminal Room is located in the California room on the Ballroom  
Level of Tower 2 of the San Francisco Hilton & Towers.
It is open 24 hours a day beginning at 4pm on Sunday, March 22nd and  
ending at 6pm on Friday, March 27th. A help desk
is being provided and will be manned from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM every  
day.  The room itself consists of approximately 80 seats
providing wired 10/100/1000 Ethernet access and 120v North American  
power ports.  There are also two duplex color
printers available. Please note that the only terminals are two  
Windows laptops computers. It is simply a place to get power,
wired Internet access, color printers or help desk support.

When using the Ethernet connections in the Terminal Room, IPv4  
addressing is provided via DHCP. Please use
Dynamic Auto-configuration for IPv6.

	-=- NOC -=-

If you need to report a problem to the NOC, either stop by the help  
desk located in the terminal room, or send an email to
noc@meeting.ietf.org.  We also have a ticketing system at http://noc.meeting.ietf.org 
, and a Jabber room at noc@jabber.ietf.org.
	-=- Network Basics -=-
The IETF 74 network connects to the Internet via two DS3 circuits from  
Level3.  The entire event is addressed out
of the block for IPv4 and 2001:df8::/32 for IPv6.
	-=- Wireless -=-
An 802.11 a/b/g wireless network is being provided liberally in the  
San Francisco Hilton & Towers. The areas being
specifically covered are the meeting rooms and hallways in the  
conference area, the main lobby, and Urbana Tavern.

To use this network, associate with the beaconed SSID of "ietf" for  
802.11a/b/g and "ietf-a" for 802.11a.  IPv4
addressing is provided via DHCP.  IPv6 clients should use Dynamic Auto- 
configuration. "ietf-v6ONLY" will not route any
IPv4 traffic, however a squid proxy has been provided.

Squid Proxy
Port: 3128
A & AAAA: proxy.meeting.ietf.org
A record only: proxy-v4.meeting.ietf.org
AAAA record only: proxy-v6.meeting.ietf.org

For those interested in more link-layer security, a WPA SSID with  
802.1x is available.  The SSIDs are "ietf.1x"
and "ietf-a.1x". Do not use WPA-PSK as that will not work.

To use 802.1x:
1. Associate to SSID: ietf.1x OR ietf-a.1x
3. Do Not Verify Server Cert and we won't verify yours :)
4. Username (case sensitive): ietf
5. Password (case sensitive): ietf

The proper operation of the wireless network requires the assistance  
of all users.  One of the most significant
issues with wireless performance in past IETF meetings has been  
wireless clients automatically, or accidentally
initiating "ad-hoc" networks that act as the official IETF wireless  
network, causing other users to associate with
false IETF wireless networks.  Therefore, please disable your client's  
ability to create an ad-hoc network and as
well as the ability to automatically join an ad-hoc network.  If you  
are using Windows XP or Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5 to
manage your wireless client, the instructions to disable creation of  
ad-hoc networks are listed below. If you are
using other systems, please do whatever your particular wireless  
client management system requires to turn off
ad-hoc networks.

	-- Instructions for Mac OS X
   Open System Preferences -> Network -> Airport -> Options and un- 
check the box for "Create Computer-to-
Computer networks".

	-- Instructions for Windows XP
   Open Properties -> wireless networks -> advanced and then select  
"access point (infrastructure) networks only"
and unselect "automatically connect to non-preferred networks".

	-=- Guest Rooms in the Venue Hotel -=-
Internet room access has been transfered to our network for rooms  
booked under the IETF room block.  If you booked your
room through another method, your room will not likely be switched  
over.  The hotel has moved all rooms in Tower 2 and half
of Tower 3, and is placing registrations done under the IETF block in  
these rooms.

	-=- Printing -=-
Two printers are located in the Terminal Room and are available to all  
IETF users. The printers themselves are
Xerox 8550DN which are Postscript capable and have the duplex option  
installed. The printers are accessible via
LPD, Bonjour, standard TCP/IP on port 9100. Printer host names are  
printer9.meeting.ietf.org and printer10.meeting.ietf.org.

	-=- Services -=-
The following network services are provided:
•	SMTP – smtp.meeting.ietf.org
SMTP relay services are provided for users on the IETF network.
•	NTP - ntp.meeting.ietf.org
Stratum 2 time service is provided via IPv4 and IPv6 unicast.

The above hostnames are configured with redunancy to the following  
hosts: (IPv4) or 2001:df8:0:5::6/64 (IPv6)  - ntp1.meeting.ietf.org (IPv4) or 2001:df8:0:5::7/64 (IPv6)  - ntp2.meeting.ietf.org

Additionally, full recursive DNS service is being provided from,, 2001:df8:0:5::6/64, and 2001:df8:0:5:7/64.
Our domain name is ietf71.ietf.org.

	-=- Thanks -=-
The terminal room and IETF network are made possible by the generous  
contributions by a number of companies
and by the tireless efforts of our volunteer team. If you see any of  
these people in the halls, please be sure to thank
them for all their work!
