What can you tell me (student) about using other long distance carriers? (link)

The University's long distance carrier is BTI. If you elect not to use the University's system, you will need to acquire a calling card from the carrier of your choice for the placement of long distance calls. Access to alternate carriers is available through the W&L system by dialing the carriers "800" access numbers. You may also reach an alternate carrier by dialing 9 + 1010xxx + 0 + phone number (for example, to access AT&T using this method you would dial 9 + 1010288 + 0 + phone number). Contact your carrier for their three digit code and rates.

Washington and Lee University does not charge residents for the alternate carrier access described above. You must have an existing calling/credit card arrangement with the alternate carrier and must not associate that account with your local number nor allow charges to be billed to your local number. A substantial service fee will be assessed for all calls billed back to W&L numbers.

If you find that you cannot dial the alternate carrier of your choice from within the W&L system, please contact the Telecommunications Office. telcom@wlu.edu

What can you tell me (student) about long distance service phone in my campus residence? (link)

Placement of outgoing long distance calls requires the use of your personal 7-digit authorization code. Your long distance code will be in you WebAdvisor account . No deposit is required for long distance service. No subscription fee or monthly service fee will be charged for an authorization code.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your authorization code and you will be responsible for all calls placed with your authorization code. If your authorization code is lost or stolen, or if for any reason you feel the security of this number has been compromised, immediately contact the W&L Telecommunications Office in person. Because of the serious nature of the loss of an authorization code, if the Telecommunications Office is closed, you should contact University Security immediately at 8999.

Since your telephone service is provided by the University, you may not subscribe to any "residential" long distance plan offered by another long distance carrier. However, you may obtain access to the interstate common carrier of your choice by establishing a calling card account with them and dialing the carrier's "800" access number. You may also reach an alternate carrier by dialing 9 + 1010xxx + 0 + phone number (for example, to access AT&T using this method, you would dial 9 + 1010288 + 0 + phone number). Contact your carrier for their three digit code and rates. Be aware that many advertised calling cards have per call surcharges or monthly fees associated with them, so read the fine print before committing to any of these services. Please remember that your alternate carrier calling card account can't be associated with your W&L phone system telephone number. A substantial service fee will be charged for calls billed back to your W&L telephone number. For more information, contact the Telecommunications Office.

Complaints related to operator services from any carrier may be addressed to: FCC, Common Carrier Bureau Enforcement Division, 2025 M Street NW, Washington DC, 20554.

What can you tell me about my (student) phone in my campus residence? (link)

If your campus residence is in the dorms, apartments, or sororities, your phone is already installed and ready for use. It is a Rolm 120 digital phone with the following features:

• Single-line digital telephone with 12 special function buttons
• Eight common function buttons (hold, connect, transfer, volume up, volume down, flash, DND, message waiting)
• One button to indicate line is in use
• One-way speaker (you can hear but not speak)
• Two spare buttons to access many other options
• Four-digit dialing on campus
• PhoneMail (Rolm's voice mail)
• Do Not Disturb (DND) feature

If you reside in one of the fraternities, you will need to provide your own phone for your room. Since the phone lines in the fraternities are analog, a normal single line phone like you have at home is all you need (older rotary phones will not work on this system). However, in order to more easily take advantage of some of the system features, it will be beneficial to have a phone that has a "FLASH" button on it, but it is not required.

LOGGING INTO THE CAMPUS COMMUNICATIONS HUB CALENDAR

  • Go to http://go.wlu.edu/CCH, or click on the "Calendar" link at the top any W&L web page and click on the "Events Calendar" link, found in the descriptive text in the center portion of the page, or from the blue navigation on the left.
  • Once you've entered the Events Calendar section, choose "Login" from the blue navigation on the left.
  • You will be sent to the Login page, where a large green button will be in the center. Members of the W&L community will click this button, and a dialog box will pop down from the top of your browser. Here you will enter your regular W&L username and password (You do not need to put AD/).
  • Click Login.

GETTING TO KNOW THE ADMIN VIEW:

  • Once you have logged in, you will see your left navigation has expanded to give you many more options, including "Submit an Event," as well as various filters to allow you to view all the events in either a daily, weekly or monthly view.

CREATING A NEW EVENT

  • To add a new event, you must first click on "Submit an Event."
  • At the top of the page, you will see two calendars. Here you can set a start and end date for your event. If the event takes place on only one day, make sure both calendars have the same day. Your selected date(s) will show up in green.
  • Select a Primary Calendar for your event. Your primary calendar enables your event to feed to your department's homepage, as well as determines which calendar managers have edit rights to this event. Therefore, if you a contributor to the Web Communications calendar and selected Web Communications, the event would show up on the Web Communications website and other web team members would be able to edit the event if necessary. Once you have chosen a primary calendar, you will have the option of selection additional calendar associations for your event, including general calendars like Arts and Culture, Holiday Events, Public Events and Student Organizations. Note: All events will display on the default (master) calendar view. Multiple calendars can be selected, based on your personal access and the appropriateness of the event.
  • Next, select a Primary Type. The primary event you choose for your event will appear in parentheses after your event title in the daily or weekly calendar view. For instance, if you have a speaker coming to campus and choose Speaker as your primary event type, your event will appear as "Name: Title of Talk" (Speaker) and your event will turn up in a search for speakers on the online calendar.
    • If you have a special event type that you have been used to using, such as the Registrar and "Adjusted Class Schedule," these event types require a 2-step process to access. First, you have to be sure that you choose the correct Primary Calendar, which will likely be the main calendar you most often post to. Then, you must choose the closest match from the list of general Primay Types. Once a Primary Type is select, the field will expand to display checkboxes of all the general and special event types available. Therefore, if you wish to add "Adjusted Class Schedule" as a special event type, you would have to first select "Academic" as your primary schedule, then something like "Special Event" for your Primary Type, and finally "Adjusted Class Schedule" as an additional type.
  • Fill in a Title for your event. Try to make it short, but descriptive enough that people will know what it is and wnat to come! In the case of speakers, we recommend formatting them as follows: Speaker Name: "Talk Title"
  • Fill in an event description. HTML is not allowed, and while this may make some superusers a little disappointed, it makes our system much more stable. The only formatting available is line breaks, separating your paragraphs into logical blocks of information.
  • Select a Start Time (and End Time if applicable) from the drop down box provided.
  • Select the audience(s) for your event. This will allow your event to display on the audience dashboard pages for the audience you select (Current Students, Faculty/Staff, Alumni, Prospective Students, Parents and Visitors). We don't guarantee placement on these pages, but by selecting them, they become eligible for display and more importantly, are filterable on the larger calendar view.
  • If the event is a closed event that requires tickets, permission or advanced registration, check the box (but be sure to explain how/where one might go to gain access in the description).
  • Select a Campus Venue location for your event from the drop-down list, or indicate an alternate venue by selecting "Other Venue" from the drop down, then filling in the box that appears underneath.
  • For Contact Information, you can either leave the default selection (yourself), or choose from the entire list of employees or students, as well as a field marked other. Simply select your choice, and choose from the drop-down menu with the appropriate person.
  • If your event has a unique URL, such as http://mockconvention.com, you can enter it in the field provided. Be sure to add the http:// before your URL.
  • When you check the box to nominate your event as featured, it is forwarded to the news office for special placement on the appropriate audience dashboard as well as the W&L homepage. We don't guarantee placement on these pages, and give preference to those events with the broadest appeal (generally multiple audiences.) Note that these events must appeal to a broad audience and are generally open to the entire University community and/or the public at large.
  • When you create an event in the new CCH, you have the option to create a corresponding campus notice at the same time. If you don't wish to do so, click "save to calendar only." If you do wish to create a notice, keep in mind that your event will automatically appear in the Upcoming and Today sections (right sidebar) of Campus Notices beginning a week prior to the event date. Events that are classified with a primary type of "Deadline" will begin to appear in the Upcoming Deadlines listing 30 days prior to the deadline.
  • If you choose "Save to Calendar and Create Campus Notices," you will be directed to a page where you can choose your audicence for the Campus Notice. Select the appropriate audience and proceed.
  • You can then edit the subject & body copy of your notice, as well as select the first and second days that your notice will run. The selected days will be highlighted in green.
  • Click "Post this Notice" and you are done!

What can you tell me (student) about the 911 service? (link)

W&L’s system is linked directly to the area Emergency 911 notification system. 911 should only be used in life threatening situations. Minor emergency calls should be placed to University Security at 8999 from any W&L extension. You may place a call to E-911 by dialing 9+911. In most cases, the E-911 dispatcher will see the phone number you are dialing from and your location on their dispatch screen.

If you accidentally dial 911, please don’t hang up. Simply identify yourself and tell them there is no emergency at your location. There are cases when 911 is accidentally dialed, especially on international calls which require a 9-0-11 prefix or when using a fax machine. If you hang up, the 911 dispatcher is obligated to pursue the call to try to determine if there is an actual emergency.

Be sure to dial carefully. If you unintentionally contact a 911 dispatcher, please explain your mistake to them and you will have played an important role in making the system work properly (and you won’t be responsible for emergency crews rolling up to your dorm on a false alarm).

What are the rules and regulations for me (student) using the phones? (link)

• You will be billed for unanswered long distance calls if you listen to a ring or busy signal for 30 seconds or more (approximately 4 rings) after completion of dialing. You will be charged for a one minute call. Credit will not be issued for these calls.
• Students must not bill calls directly to their residence hall telephone number (i.e., accepting collect calls and third party calls). The cost of the call plus a handling fee of $20.00 will be charged to the extension to which the call has been billed.
• University telephones must not be removed from their assigned locations. The ROLM-phone will not work with any other system. The actual cost to replace a missing phone or phones damaged beyond repair will be charged to resident of the room. Phones will not be replaced until a report has been filed with the Telecommunications Office.
• If you damage or deface your phone, a charge for damages, time, and materials will be made against your account for any repairs (usually a minimum of $50).
• Students must keep the phones plugged in at all times. If a phone is detected unplugged, a $5.00 fee will be charged. Unplugged phones create problems for our system. The Do Not Disturb (DND) feature has been provided to help you avoid this fee.
• Be aware that some 800 number calls convert to toll calls (900 number). If you connect with one of these numbers, the cost of the call will be passed along to you. Direct dialing of 900 number services is blocked in our system.
• If your authorization code is lost or stolen, or if for any reason you feel the security of this number has been compromised, immediately contact W&L's Telecommunications Office in person. You will be responsible for all calls made prior to your notification in person. Because of the serious nature of the loss of an authorization code, if the Telecommunications Office is closed, you should contact University Security immediately.

If one takes a W&L laptop that is in the W&L AD domain off campus and then attaches to a site that is in the IE 'Local Intranet' security zone, the laptop attempts to do pass-through integrated windows login.  However, this requires that the computer has direct access to an AD domain controller, which is blocked in the firewall.  Unfortunately, IE does not gracefully fall back to a username and password prompt in this case.

 

To configure IE to always prompt for a username and password:

1.       Open Internet Explorer

2.       Select “Tools”

3.       Select “Internet Options”

4.       Select “Security”

5.       Select “Local  intranet”

How do I use FLASH feature on my phone if I live off campus? (link)

The FLASH function places any call on soft hold so that you can access a feature or dial another party. The soft hold lasts until you hang up or reconnect the call.

If you are not sure whether to FLASH before using a system feature, remember that you must have dial tone before using a feature. So, if you don't have dial tone, FLASH.

As a resident of off-campus housing, you provide your own phone and it is suggested that you use a phone that has a FLASH button since this feature is used to access so many system features. If you do not have a phone with a FLASH button, do the following: Press the switch hook on your phone for one second Listen for a tone followed by the high pitched holding tone

Note: Holding the switch hook down for longer than one second can disconnect your call.

Why can't I log on to a W&L authenticated web application? (link)

Here are some of the most common symptoms and solutions to authentication failure to W&L web applications:

  1. You are repeatedly presented with a login prompt, which never is successful.  You are using a personal computer, or are off campus.    Try entering your user name with the prefix "AD\" .  E.g.   AD\MyAccountName  .  W&L's Active Directory domain is named "AD".  This prefix tells the web server which domain to authenticate against.
  2. The previous step does not work, but in the popup, you see an option similar to "Use Another Account".  Select that option, and use the AD\ prefix.  In this case, your browser is using your computer's name as the authentication domain, and is ignoring the AD\ prefix.
  3. Has your W&L password expired?  Has it been more that one year since you changed it?  You may do so at http://password.wlu.edu.
  4. You are using FireFox version 30.0 on a Mac or Linux workstation.  Release 30 breaks Windows authentication.  See the following for a fix: http://managementtools.wlu.edu/Help/Resources/1/271.pdf
  5. You are using FireFox version 40, and accessing an unauthenticated page with authenticated content embedded in it.  This version of FireFox intentionally disables this if the page and content are in different domains.  You can configure Firefox to allow this, or use a different browser.
  6. You are using Safari, and receiving the error "request body stream exhausted".  This is a bug with Safari authentication.  Use a different browser.
  7. You are on an iOS device, recently updated to version 7.  This update breaks windows authentication for some iOS devices like iPhones or iPads.  Use another device.
  8. You are never presented with a login prompt.  You are using Internet Explorer on a W&L computer, from off campus.  Integrated Windows login is failing because the browser can not communicate with a W&L AD Domain Controller from off campus.  Use another browser or temporarily disable Integrated Windows authentication: https://managementtools.wlu.edu/Help/Default.aspx?col=1&q=unable+log+login

If none of these solutions work, try going to http://MyVI.wlu.edu and opening a web browser from the APPS screen.  Then, you will effectively be using a W&L computer, and on campus.  This will bypass many issues associated with using personally owned computers.

I'm not getting cable channels above 13 on my campus cable TV, what do I do? (link)

Having trouble with your Cable TV? Here are some problem solving tips:

  • If you have a VCR hooked up with your TV, unhook it and work directly with the TV until you resolve the problem.
  • Check the wire that connects your TV to the wall jack. (You must provide this wire -- available at the Bookstore, Wal Mart, etc.). Make sure this cable is connected properly to both the TV and the wall jack and that the ends of the thin wire inside this cable are not bent over.
  • Next try programming your TV:
    1. Activate the MENU settings of your TV set
    2. Scroll through menu selections until you find a TV/ANTENNA/CABLE setting (or something similar)
    3. Change this setting to CABLE or CATV.
    4. After setting to CATV, use the AUTO PROGRAM feature to automatically find the channels.
  • If you have tried trouble shooting your TV and it still doesn't work please send a work order request with the help desk.

Where can a student look for a lost file opened from Sakai? (lost file,attachment) (link)

1. Open Internet Explorer.

2. Go up to the gear menu in the upper right and select "Internet Options".

3. On the first page, you'll see a subheading named "Browsing history" and two buttons--hit "Settings".

4. In the new window that pops up, select "View Files" and a file window will open up. There, you can sort by name or size or type (although the name will likely be meaningless, just look for a file of the right type that was edited at or near the right time.

5. DO NOT double-click the file--it will try to open it up from the web, not where you saved it, and may corrupt what you have saved. Select the right file or files, and copy them to the desktop (either drag-and-drop or Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V). There you can open it and resave it properly with the right name.

When you add a W&L student, faculty or staff member to a Sakai site (Site Info > Add Participants) add the USERNAME ONLY in the top box for Official Participants. If you use the entire e-mail address, Sakai creates a guest account instead of using the regular account that's already there, so the regular account won't see the website.

All child windows must be closed using the CLOSE WINDOW button. If the user uses the browser's red X to close the windows, they will still get the error and be forced to log out and back in to WebAdvisor.
