The IT department is the first point of contact for reports or questions related to network problems on the Portland campus.
Linfield College's internal network operates TCP/IP over Ethernet. Most elements of the Linfield College network are managed from the McMinnville campus. Portland campus staff work with the college's Network Manager when needed to address local network issues. The entire campus can access a wireless network which is managed locally by the IT department.
IT provides support for staff and faculty users of network clients used to access Linfield College resources. That support currently includes Outlook or Entourage for access to Linfield e-mail and Firefox as our primary Web browser. Internet Explorer on Windows is supported only in those cases where a specific, college-related business or support activity requires it.
IT does not provide network client support or computer hardware or software problem-solving or repair for computer equipment not owned by the Portland campus of Linfield College. IT will investigate network-level issues affecting college-owned or student client computers.
