Gaming System Registration

McPherson College acknowledges that enterprise network infrastructure utilizing industry standards and best practices creates many hurdles for student online gaming systems. To combat these technology hurdles, McPherson College has created a network infrastructure that should improve student gaming on campus. This document outlines the required information and policies that students will be held accountable to.

To accommodate gaming with off-campus gamers, each gaming system needs a public IP address. Public, IPV4 IP addresses are in limited supply. For the time being, each student will be allowed to register one (1) gaming system of their choice for inclusion in this program.
