Once your userid is registered in the NERSP user database, actually signing on to use the system is a very simple, straightforward process. You simply type your userid at the
login: prompt, and your password at the
prompt. An example of a user logging on to NERSP is shown in FIGURE 2: Sample NERSP Logon. Again, in this example, our user's userid is "
userid" and the password does not display.

If when signing on you see the message...
You entered an invalid login name or password.
...it means that the system did not recognize either your userid or your password (or both). Try again, taking care to enter your username in all lower case, and your password exactly as known by the system (taking into account UPPER-vs-lower case letters, etc.). If you are unable to resolve the problem, contact the CNS Support Desk at (352) 392-2061 for assistance.
Following the log-in procedure proper are some messages. Some of these may be from the system administrators, advising you of system changes and other news. Other messages may be from the system itself, such as the "
unsuccessful login:" and "
Last login:" messages.
