Acceptable vs Unacceptable Devices

Acceptable Devices

  • Personal Desktop Computers - Windows, Mac, Linux/UNIX
  • Laptops
  • Tablets
  • Gaming Consoles 
  • Entertainment Systems

Unacceptable Devices

  • Routers
  • Switches
  • Wireless Access Points
  • Firewalls
  • Hubs
  • Bridges
  • Computers running any server-type process such as DHCP, DNS, Web Servers, FTP Servers, etc.
  • Peer-to-Peer Connections (P2P) - Settings or software installed on such devices as Smart TV's, Amazon Echo, Wireless VR Headsets, etc. that allow direct device to device connection. If these settings can be disabled or the software uninstalled, the devices may be able to properly connect to the ResHall/IOT network after they are removed.
Unacceptable devices compromise the design and security of the ResHall network. Unacceptable devices detected on the network will lose access to the network (port and login will be blocked). Reread the ResHall Policy or contact the OIT Support Center for assistance if you are unsure about whether a particular device is allowed on the network.
