Information for Visiting Astronomers
Welcome to Calar Alto
Calar Alto has a DHCP Server. So, if you want to integrate your laptop on our network, only plug it into any TP connector THAT HAS NO RED LABEL, you'll find all around Calar Alto and configure it to accept dynamic addressing.
If your laptop has wireless connection, you can use it at the Hotel hall and at the laboratory.
Please, see this document for a DHCP detailed explanation.
