GUIDELINES FOR USAGE OF INETKEY AND THE INTERNET:



CLICK HERE FOR A SUMMARY OF THE GUIDELINES BELOW IN PDF FORMAT

 

 

  • Ensure you have the latest version of NXInetkey installed. IT takes no responsibility for non-standard inetkeys (eg PINetkey etc)
  • ALL traffic to and from your pc will be charged to your account. If you make use of torrent programmes you will be charged for
    the data you download as well as the data downloaded from you
  • If your settings for programme updates (eg Adobe, Microsoft or antivirus programmes) is set to automatically update,
    you will be charged for data even though you're not aware of the updates.
    Rather set it so manual so you can decide for yourself when you'd like to update the software. (possible in a cheaper time)
  • Make sure your proxy settings are correct. If you add http://www.sun.ac.za/sunproxy.pac to your lan settings you will not pay for certain websites.
    If it's not added, you'll pay for all traffic (local US sites included!)
  • IT hosts selected software and updates locally at http://support.sun.ac.za.If you make use of these (and your proxy is set up correctly) you can access it for free.
  • Update your antivirus software regularly. If your pc is infected it could lead to access internet traffic for which you're charged unknowingly.
  • Make 100% sure your Inetkey is closed when you leave your pc. Inetkey won't automatically close when you log off or when you minimize. Click on Disconnect otherwise someone else might make use of your account.
  • Regularly check your internetcost. You can do this on the Inetkey screen or by going to www.sun.ac.za/useradm.
  • If you spot any irregular patterns or sudden increase of traffic for which you're not responsible, you can query the usage. For this we need your written permission. An admin fee of R200-00 will be levied for the enquiry.
  • IT accepts no responsibility for any incorrect settings of configurations on your pc which leads to access traffic to and from your pc and internet account as logged by Inetkey.
