Access Point Connection Service User’s Guide


Access Point Connections

The University of Tsukuba operates various Access Points with different modes and areas of service, so computer users can have their own PC connected to the on-campus network system. As the Access Point Connections consist of different systems, available services may vary accordingly. Users are encouraged to become familiar with the kind of services available and use the Access Points appropriately.

There will be no fees charged in using the Access Point Connection Service, however, the user needs to have their own PC, network interface, a public line for public circuit connection service, ISP service for VPN connection, etc.
