IP Address Request Form

SEASnet uses static IP addresses for network access. Due to the size of our network and the number of users, we have multiple sub-nets which require your network port to be configured to work with your IP address. You have to manually set up the IP address info in your computer for the network connection to function properly.

All network users must understand that SEASnet is responsible for ensuring the network is secure and meets all campus policies. At this point, SEASnet does not firewall the network; however, we do block various ports for security reasons.

This form is used to request that SEASnet assign an IP address for your computer, printer, or other network device. The form is not considered complete until we have all the information requested.

The service is provided free of charge, but a valid recharge ID is required to process this request. You should receive your IP address in 24-48 hours (weekends and holidays excluded) once we obtain all the information needed to process the request.

Your networked equipment must be located in Boelter Hall, Engineering IV, Engineering V, or Engineering VI buildings. If this computer has been on the network before, we ask you to check with the SEASnet Helpdesk before you fill out this form because it may already have an IP address assigned to it.

SEASnet requires all mail servers be registered. If this request is for a machine that will perform mail server functions please make a note of this in the comments section of your request.

Please inform SEASnet of any change in “contact information” for your lab or research group. This is the only means to contact you when problems arise.

If you are planning on moving to another location in engineering, SEASnet requires at least 48 hour advance notice (weekends and holidays excluded) to ensure that network connectivity is not interrupted. For large moves of 10 network devices or more, SEASnet must be contacted at the beginning of all talks involving the move.

If you just need network cables, please use the online form to buy cables from SEASnet:
