Other Services

We will liaise with CN operations support to equip UNIX workstations with a professional file backup schedule. On demand, we will install a local client to permit users to take advantage of this service. We will also offer advice on other local backup tools.

We will offer to UNIX Workstation System Administrators some advice on system security, in particular the so-called CRACK password checking service to detect weak passwords.

We will maintain a central print spool service on which all network-attached printers may be declared and thus accessed from any authorised UNIX workstation.

We will negotiate a site contract for Framemaker based on floating licences as well as an upgrade path for existing licences to the newly-released Framemaker 4 package.

We will maintain a font server for use by X-Terminals or UNIX workstations equipped with X11R5.
