ACCESS TO THE INTERNET
INETKEY offers the user a facility via which he/she will on a real-time and continuous basis be made aware of especially abnormally high Internet usage and the associated costs. It increases security as well as enables users to better manage Internet traffic and especially Internet cost.
Guidelines for the use of Inetkey
All enrolled students with an active IT user name and password have limited free access to the internet. The free web pages are set up in your proxy settings of Explorer. For Internet Explorer, this is as follows: Tools/Internet Options/Connection/Lan Settings/Use Automatic Configuration script/http://www.sun.ac.za/sunproxy.pac.
You also have free access to the IT FTP server at ftp://ftp.sun.ac.za. This server contains a lot of material available elsewhere on the internet and is duplicated, free of charge, for users locally. It contains, for example, mirror images of different web sites or parts of web sites or other ftp servers and a wide variety of software or documentation. One of the well-known sites that is available here as a mirror site is TUCOWS.
You can use ftp.sun.ac.za:
Tariff A @ R0.02: Monday-Friday: 08h00-23h59
Tariff B @ R0.01 : Monday-Friday: 00h00-07h59, as well as Saturdays and Sundays.
The relevant tariff is determined by the day and time the download process was started.
