Internet access is provided to the University via the Australian Academic Research Network (AARNet). Access to the Internet is regulated by both AARNet access policy and the ICT Services and Facilities Usage Policy (PDF 400KB). The Internet Management System (IMS) has been implemented to help make people aware of their Internet usage and to provide an audit trail to ensure compliance with the above policies.
All devices must first be authenticated with the IMS by a user before access to the Internet is enabled. All access to the internet from the authenticated device will then be logged against the users name.
When prompted for an IMS login you should use your "UTas Active Directory" password. If you have trouble logging in first try synchronising your UTAS passwords before contacting the Service Desk.
There are four methods of authenticating to the IMS service:
Via the IMS portal you can access information, control each IMS session registered under your account, and track your Internet usage. More detailed information can be obtained by making a request via the IT Services Service Desk (Service.Desk@utas.edu.au or +61 3 6226 1818)
