A NetID and an EnterpriseID are similar and for most people their NetID (for example: ​adabyron) is the same as their EnterpriseID (adabyron​). However, the two passwords associated with them are independent. Some services accept authentication using either a NetID or an EnterpriseID.

 

If you already have an OpenVPN client installed, all you need are your configuration files from the download your OpenVPN configuration file. Otherwise, install OpenVPN through your respective repository below and then open the configuration file with your OpenVPN client once it is installed. Every person has a unique key file that they will use, in combination with their UIC NetID and password, to uniquely identify them. Everything you need for configuration is available in a compressed tar archive.

Your EnterpriseID and Enterprise password are used to access Enterprise applications such as Web for Student, Web for Faculty, Banner, etc. In almost all cases, your EnterpriseID will be the same as your UIC NetID.

Your Enterprise password can be set once you've activated your UIC NetID:

Everyone at UIC has a UIC email address of the form: NetID@uic.edu. For Ada Byron, whose student NetID is abyron1, this is: abyron1@uic.eduThis is an important email address, because all official UIC email will be sent to it. But it is just an email address; there isn't an email account to go with it. At some point or other, you will have to select an actual email account to receive and manage your NetID@uic.edu email.

Will your NetID@uic.edu email go to your Google Apps at UIC account?

Have you been using pine on tigger to manage your uic.edu email?

  • Want to get away from logging in all the time, but still use your trusty pine interface?
  • Want to be able to use pine and still save attachments directly to your personal computer?
  • Want to use pine to read your GoogleApps@UIC email?

You can do all of these things with the personal computer versions of Alpine. (The "pine" on tigger has been the newer Alpine for many years. It's the same thing.)

To connect to UIC VPN on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, you will need to install the OpenVPN Connect client and download your VPN configuration file. It is recommended to follow these instructions in order.

POP and IMAP are two different protocols, or ways of accessing your email account. The main difference between them is that:

  • By default, IMAP stores messages on the server.
  • By default, POP downloads messages to your computer or device and deletes them from the server. 

ACCC strongly recommends using IMAP:

Everyone at UIC needs to have a UIC NetID and an ACCC common password.  It allows you:

If you have moved your UIC email from Tigger to Mailserv, you can continue to use pine on either Tigger to access your Mailserv account. Use the move-to-mailserv utility to automatically configure pine up to display the contents of your Mailserv account.

The Oracle Mobile Data Sync, or OMA-DS (formerly known as SyncML), allows you to sync your mobile phone or PDA with a wireless connection directly with the UIC UICalendar server, without connecting it to a PC or Mac and without using your phone or PDA's Web browser. It does require OMA-DS/SyncML support on your mobile phone or PDA -- either built-in or through purchased software. In this case, you enter a specialized URL into SyncML client software. The SyncML client uses the URL to talk to the UICal server and syncs both ways, to the phone or PDA and back to UICal.
