  • DEFINITIONS Network Server: a computer that is connected to and designated to provide information to other computers electronically. Each individual school in our district has one or more servers assigned to it. Logging - On: the series of steps followed to “link” your computer to a network server Logging – Off: the steps followed to break the “link” between a network server and your computer 2
  • LOGGING – ON & LOGGING – OFF In a network environment, the user may log on and log off of the computer at any time. Each user has their own personal LOGIN ID/USER ID (usually the user's last name and the first name initial) and a PASSWORD. Logging – On: 1. When you sit down at a computer you will see the following on the screen: “Press "Ctrl + Alt + Delete." 2. At this Windows NT screen, press “Ctrl + ALT + Delete” simultaneously on your keyboard. 3. Type your login name and press the Tab key to move to the next field. 4. Type your password in this field. 5. Verify that your DOMAIN is your school or TESD (if not, choose your domain from the drop down list. 6. Press Enter on your keyboard or click on “OK.” **It is vital that each user log off the machine after use. Do not just walk away from the machine after use leaving it logged onto the network, as this will allow anyone to view your e-mail, modify, copy, or delete files which you have on the District’s file server and perform other online activities in your name. Logging off the District's network does not shut down your computer. It simply disconnects it from the network. When you are finished using your computer for the day, make sure your computer is logged off and then turn off your monitor (if it does not automatically go to sleep after several minutes). It is not necessary to shut down your computer unless instructed to by the HelpDesk. Logging – Off: 1. Press "Ctrl + ALT + Delete" and click the "Logoff" button. 2. OR click on “Start”, choose “Shut Down”, then choose "Close all programs and log on as a different user." Shut Down: 1. Click on “Start,” choose “Shut Down”, then choose “Shut down the computer?” Click “OK.” 3 View slide
