ICESS Remote Access Information
If you are interested in being able to dial in to ICESS (we know you just can't
get enough of this place - ever!) so that you can compute around the clock you
will need to know the following:
Dialing in via the UCSB Campus modem pool:
You will need an account name and a password to use the following modem.
Please contact ICESS System Administration concerning this information
Dialing in to the modem connected to an ICESS UNIX machine:

from UCSB Communications Services.
Other remote access suggestions
Here are some more suggestions for gaining ICESS/Bren remote access. We do
not support these services.
- Use a standard communications package (like procomm, or the hyperterminal
in Win95), set for the proper baud rate, and N81 (no parity 8 data bits, 1
stop bit). You might experience some problem depending on what terminal you
use and on how your modem is set up.

This is a dialup PPP service provided by commserv. You would be able to
run multiple telnet sessions, FTP, any pop client for email (eudora for instance
for email), and/or Xwindows packages (like Xwin32, although this is PAINFULLY
slow unless you have ISDN), Netscape and so forth. The drawback is that this
service will not allow you to browse off campus (i.e. you couldn't use netscape
to find any web sites that are off campus).
- Check out http://www.as.ucsb.edu and
go to the "home-ip" button. You can register for a free account that will
give you a username and password (providing validation) which will allow you
to do the same as number 1 above, but it will ALSO let you browse the net
off campus with Netscape. The drawback is that this is, excpet for the excelent
help pages on their web, a TOTALLY unsupported service, and my go away AT
ANY TIME. DO NOT email them for help. The service is provided on "borrowed"
resources from Associated Students, and supported by volunteer time from a
student. AS may at any time decide that this service is draining too much
time from their server, and pull the plug on the whole thing.
- Check out http://www.commserv.ucsb.edu/hpage/hot/remote/commann.htm
. This has information on GTE Intelligent Net Services or some such. For
o 15.95/month you can get unlimited access to the internet and an 800 number
that you can use to access email and the internet when you are away from campus
on travel to boot.
