NIST users, including traveling employees, guest researchers, and collaborators, may use an Internet Service Provider (ISP) to gain access to the NIST networks using the SSL Remote Access service. NIST credentials are required to use either of these services. If a user encounters trouble accessing NIST remotely, the following questions/answers may assist in troubleshooting.
- I tried to connect to inside.nist.gov, and got the error message: "If you are experiencing connectivity issues, please click here for possible solutions, or call iTAC." What does this mean?
- I cannot access SSL Remote Access or I'm having trouble loggin in. What can I do?
- What are the browser requirements to use SSL Remote Access?
- I'm still having trouble accessing SSL Remote Access. What else can I try?
- How can I determine my IP address?
- When my antivirus software is running and the virus definitions are up-to-date, why is my computer still failing the antivirus pre-logon checks?
- I'm having issues installing the Network Access plug-in automatically in Linux. Is there a way to perform the install?
- I'm having the error message - 'Couldn't open proxy server' when installing the Network Access Plug-in. What can I do?
