Internet connection is provided by ACD.

More information about the internet connection and trouble shooting can be found here: Internets

The connection is a bonded DSL line with 75 down and 15 up. The modem provided has ports 1 and 2 enabled and exposes all devices attached to the internet with semi-static IPs. We cannot administer this device and it is not a router.


WIFI is provided by the Ubiquiti Access points throughout the space.

4 DHCP enabled SSID's are provided at present.

SSID: AllHandsActive-Guest

Throttled AHA public wireless. Defaults to 4mpbs per connection. This places you on a private un-authenticated devices only network.

SSID: AllHandsActive-Members

Unthrottled AHA member wireless. Secured using your All Hands Active LDAP username and password. Unlimited devices for each member and puts your device on the main network.

This uses Enterprise WPA2 with no certificate (or don't check), TTLS, MSCHAPv2. Many interfaces include a field for anonymous identity - this can be left blank.

Annex Switch

24 port unmanaged 1GBPS switch is located in the rack at the back of AHA.

Annex Switch

TrendNet router configured in bridge mode. Provides AllHandsActive-Annex Wi-fi SSID.

Located in the Annex provides hardwired annex ports. Runs off port 24 on the patch panel.

Machines are fresh installed to same state and are not backed up. The NAS offers recovery in event of a loss of disk. We presently do not do a remote backup of user files.

Mapping drives

Copy setupDrives.vbs to C:\ from \\hub\AHASoftware

In Windows startup Local Group Policy Editor as Admin Under UserConfiguration\Windows Settings\Scripts (Logon/Logoff) add the script as a login script.

This login script maps drives for Software, Home and Share. It redirects the users desktop and my documents folder to their home folder within the NAS. The redirection of desktop/documents is disabled for the admin account.

Virtual Machines

Future State: HUB@AHA has a VM folder in the AHASoftware share. It will be mounted to the 6 public workstations at login. Need someone to build these. Demure was interested. It's maintained by AHA members and configured with default settings for the space. You may clone the image for your personal use.


  • Create base image
  • Install additional software
  • Configure home directory mount via LDAP.
  • Install VirtualBox extensions.
  • Mark it read only.
  • Share to network via NAS.
  • Configure login script to mount this share at login.

Base Image

A base install of the latest LTR Ubuntu image that is reasonably patched?

Additional software

These packages are installed in addition to the base install.

  • Arduino
  • Eclipse
  • JDK
  • Inkscape
  • Gimp
  • Blender
  • OpenSCAD

If you need additional packages please contact xxxx to request a base package be added to the distribution.

Usage pattern

Copy the VM to your private folder on the NAS and use as needed. Wipe/Restore from base image as needed.
