Laboratory equipment

Computers

Add the following definitions to your static lookup table (/etc/hosts) to be able to use computer names instead of IP addresses:

# Gagne's lab.
132.203.160.97  corbeau.rsvs.ulaval.ca corbeau
132.203.160.173 pelican.rsvs.ulaval.ca pelican
132.203.160.148 pigeon.rsvs.ulaval.ca pigeon
132.203.160.163 phenix.rsvs.ulaval.ca phenix

# Lague's lab.
132.203.160.46  acajou.rsvs.ulaval.ca acajou
132.203.160.150 oak.rsvs.ulaval.ca oak
132.203.89.87   elm.rsvs.ulaval.ca elm
132.203.89.86   treed.rsvs.ulaval.ca treed
132.203.160.115 baobab.rsvs.ulaval.ca baobab

# Laptops with a fixed IP address
132.203.160.169 chouette.rsvs.ulaval.ca chouette
132.203.160.175 gorfou.rsvs.ulaval.ca gorfou
132.203.160.155 harfang.rsvs.ulaval.ca harfang
132.203.160.120 pine.rsvs.ulaval.ca pine
132.203.160.161 sequoia.rsvs.ulaval.ca sequoia

Il ne vous reste alors qu'à changer la définition de l'hôte local pour refléter le nom de votre ordinateur. (Cela revient à remplacer les deux occurences de harfang par le nom de votre ordinateur.)

Accès hors campus

Les ordinateurs Pélican, Pigeon, Oak et Elm peuvent être accédés à partir de l'extérieur du campus en utilisant SSH. Pour créer des tunnels SSH vous permettant d'accéder aux autres ordinateurs, consultez le guide Remote login and file transfer with OpenSSH.

Pour consulter de l'extérieur du campus les ressources en ligne de la bibliothèque et les périodiques auxquels l'Université Laval est abonnée, demandez à un collègue de vous aider...

Printers

The IP addresses of our printers are:

Follow the links on each printer model name for a quick installation guide on Gentoo systems.

RSVS common printers

Le pavillon Charles-Eugène-Marchand offre quatre imprimantes laser (une à chaque étage), qui sont accessibles à travers un serveur d'impression LDP. L'adresse du serveur est 132.203.89.16. Les queues d'impression sont nommées lex1000pcl, lex2000pcl, lex3000pcl et lex4000pcl.

Campus wireless network

To access to ulaval wireless network via wpa (i.e. not with vpn), you need:

  1. wireless card
  2. an IDUL and associated password
  3. to pay for accessing the network
  4. wireless configured properly (I use the most recent ~x86 ipw2200 and ieee80211)
  5. wpa_supplicant (I use the most recent ~x86)

The file that need to be configured are:

/etc/conf.d/net

#modules=( "wpa_supplicant" )
modules=( "!iwconfig" "wpa_supplicant" )
wpa_supplicant_eth1="-Dwext"
associate_timeout_eth1=60
config_eth0=( "dhcp" )
config_eth1=( "dhcp" )
dhcpcd_eth0="-t 10 -N"
dhcpcd_eth1="-t 60 -N"

# the following is optional
postup() {
if grep -q rsvs /etc/resolv.conf ; then
  echo "/etc/resolv.conf:"
  cat /etc/resolv.conf
else
  echo "/etc/resolv.conf:"
  echo "search rsvs.ulaval.ca" >> /etc/resolv.conf
  cat /etc/resolv.conf
fi

#the following is optional and is to turn on the "WiFi" light on my laptop
[ ${IFACE} = "eth1" ] && [ -e "/sys/bus/pci/drivers/ipw2200/0000:03:03.0/led" ] && \
        echo 1 >> "/sys/bus/pci/drivers/ipw2200/0000:03:03.0/led"
return 0
}


/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

( See /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf.example for more info )

( It is possible to set things up with a gui, but I have not used it )

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=10
update_config=1

# The ulaval network
network={
        ssid="ulaval-wpa"
        proto=RSN
        key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
        pairwise=CCMP
        eap=LEAP
        identity="PUT YOUR IDUL HERE"
        password="PUT YOUR PASSWORD HERE"
        ca_cert=""
        priority=5
}

# For my home network
network={
        ssid="smg"
        key_mgmt=NONE
        disabled=0
}

# To access anything available
network={
        ssid=""
        key_mgmt=NONE
        disabled=0
}

# To make sure not to try vpn
network={
        ssid="ulaval-vpn"
        key_mgmt=NONE
        disabled=1
}

# I am not sure about where that came from...
blob-base64-exampleblob={
SGVsbG8gV29ybGQhCg==
}

/etc/modules.d/ipw2200 (optional)

options ipw2200 led=1 associate=0
# associate=0 prevent the automatic start of eth1 when you load the ipw2200 module

And here are the scripts I use to start the wireless as a user:

won

echo "--"
source /home/smg/bin/net-services-off
echo "--"
sudo /sbin/modprobe -v ipw2200
echo "--"
sudo /etc/init.d/net.eth0 stop
echo "--"
sudo /etc/init.d/net.eth1 restart
echo "--"
source /home/smg/bin/net-services-on

woff

echo "--"
source /home/smg/bin/net-services-off
echo "--"
sudo /etc/init.d/net.eth1 stop
echo "--"
sudo /sbin/rmmod -vw ipw2200
sudo /sbin/rmmod -vw ieee80211
sudo /sbin/rmmod -vw ieee80211_crypt_wep
sudo /sbin/rmmod -vw ieee80211_crypt_tkip
sudo /sbin/rmmod -vw ieee80211_crypt
sudo /sbin/rmmod -vw firmware_class
echo "--"

net-services-on

sudo /etc/init.d/sshd start
sudo /etc/init.d/ntp-client start
sudo /etc/init.d/ntpd start

net-services-off

sudo /etc/init.d/sshd stop
sudo /etc/init.d/ntp-client stop
sudo /etc/init.d/ntpd stop

and my related sudo entries

Logos

A few logos (Laval University, CREFSIP, etc.) are available in vector graphics format (ODG and EPS). You can download them and use them in OpenOffice and LaTeX; it should also be possible to convert them to other formats or to rasterise them as bitmaps. Read the converting between image formats guide for more information. The archive also includes the official Laval University presentation template.

Software
