NASA HQ Guest Network
The NASA HQ Guest Network provides non-resident guests with general Internet access while at HQ. This network is controlled by a "captive portal" or a device that displays a Web page asking for a username and password the first time you try to access the Internet using a Web browser.
The Guest Network offers both wired and wireless access, and allows guest users to have basic Web, VPN, and e-mail access. Printing to select printers inside the HQ building is permitted. This network does NOT provide access to HQ internal resources such as Intranet applications and shared files.
- Wireless Access: Available on all floors of the HQ building; in general office areas, conference rooms, the Auditorium, and the Library.
- Wired Access: Available in most conference rooms. Look for the yellow network cable labeled "NASA HQ Guest Network."
