HOW TO: Register Your Device For Use On the Clemson Wired Network via Ethernet (Netreg)

The Clemson NetReg system builds a dynamic table of workstation addresses and the users who register them. This ensures that there is a person that can be quickly contacted in the event that there are issues with any workstation on the network.

Registrations are extended and verified every time a user logs into the Clemson network. If a user is away from campus and does not log in to the Clemson network for one year, the registration will expire and the user will have to register again.

Note: Users can add and delete their registrations via the web.

NetReg also serves as the base for the DHCP and IP database systems for managing IP address assignment.
