We offer IP Access and 10 Login Access. 


Instant IP Access 

Get instant and unlimited access for your entire organisation. This option enables unrestricted access for a particular IP (internet protocol) address or address range, meaning that any number of users can have simultaneous and immediate access, without needing to login. This article explains more about IP ranges and how to find out yours. 

Users can also get off-campus access by logging in with a username and password. 


10 Login Access

This allows up to 10 simultaneous users, and requires entering a username and password to access.
