If you intend to use your laptop off campus you will need to ensure that you connect to the UEA network at least once every 90 days either by logging in on campus or by using the UEA VPN service off-site. If you do not do this your cached credentials on the laptop will expire and you will no longer be able to login.

Just in case this happens, or the authentication service on the laptop is not working for some other reason, we can setup a fail safe emergency account. You can request this by  emailing it.linux@uea.ac.uk providing the hostname  of the laptop and the dates you are going to be working away from UEA.
