The CLAS Linux Group will not provide network cables for unsupported hardware. Cables can be purchased from the Engineering Electronics shop. The CLAS Linux Group will also provide a minimal network configuration, which will probably include connectivity to the building's networked printers and the configuration of email software.
Enrolled students can take their personally owned computer to the ITS helpdesk for assistance as defined in this service offering by ITS https://its.uiowa.edu/ssg.
Examples of unsupported hardware:
Local printers connected to your local machine
Personal laptops, phones, tablets, PC's/networking gear at your home
Cradles for hand-held computing devices (e.g., Mobile Phones, Tablets)
Other flavors of UNIX (Sun, SGI, AIX, etc.)
