Subject: Configuring PSL network 

The PSL network is presently sitting disconnected from the ATF network and the internet.  This is kind of a pain for working on the lab computers: i.e. updating, installing packages, checking web based manuals etc. It would also be nice to be able to ssh in from my Mac to the EPICS interface.

After poking around the router and tracing the Ethernet cables from the ATF lab into the PSL lab there is a link, it was just not plugged in. The map of the network is HERE, it hasn't been updated since Oct last year. When I plug the 3com switch in the PSL lab into the remaining port on the BEEFSX41 router I can see the internet from PSL if I enable DHCP.  I am give a 10.0.1.xxx address. However to reach computers within the PSL lab I need to manually stipulate a 10.0.0.xxx address for my computer or it can't find fb2, acromag1 or the acromag cards.  Not sure if we need to move all the PSL computers on the 10.0.1.xxx group of IP addresses or whether the PSL lab switch can be configured.  This is not my area of expertise.
