Users considering using the UF/CNS dial-up service should be aware that this service is under review, and may possibly be discontinued at or shortly after the end of calendar year 2006. For more information, please see Dr. Hoit's memo to Deans, Directors and Department Heads of 05/02/2006, titled Charging for UF Dialup Services.
I know that NERVM went away, but I still have an e-mail
If you are using Windows to dial in, when the connect box comes up asking for your userid and password, put the following in the password field:
The password you are changing is what people used to call the NERVM password. They called it that because at one time NERVM was our most-used system. When we issue CNS userids, the owners have access to all of our systems, whether they use them or not.
The catch (a confusing one) is that there are two passwords: one for NERSP and one for all other systems, including dial-up. The latter is the password that you are changing. Why? Because the NERSP system is UNIX-based and it doesn’t communicate well with the traditional large IBM systems. We have to maintain a separate password database for the NERSP system.
Your NERVM address doesn't really exist anymore. What is in its place is a forwarding mechanism that takes mail sent to you at NERVM and forwards to an address that you specified as your address for receiving mail--if you did that before NERVM went away. If you did not do this, you are not receiving any mail sent to NERVM. I hope this answers your questions. If not, please let us know. (tlvh)
