Information on the timeline and the handling of video recordings in the BBB.
Due to the current situation, most of our IT group is located in the home office. If you have a request or a question, please use our ticket system. We ask you not to recycle an old ticket, because this way the ticket is not recognized as a new but as an old ticket and will appear at the bottom of our system and might be overlooked. You can also leave out the "thank you" mail after we solved the problem, because this will open the ticket again and we have to close it a second time.
To make calls to a phone number from the Skype for Business App, all you have to do is click on the dialpad icon in the upper right corner.
Then you can dial the number.
ATTENTION: There must be a 0 in front of the desired number, otherwise the call will not be forwarded.
This guide works for both IPhone and Android devices.
You can find more information on the ZDV website (German).

Manual on how to create a ssh-tunnel to kph infrastructure.
For this you will need an KPH-Account and access via SSH has to be activated by us.
If you already have an KPH-Account, write an E-Mail with your KPH username to email@example.com and ask to be enabled for SSH. Please attach your public SSH-key to the E-Mail.
After we enabled your account, you can create a ssh-tunnel with Linux (batch, etc.) or Windows 10 (cmd, etc.) as follows:
ssh -N -L <local-port>:<kph-pcname>:<kph-port> firstname.lastname@example.org
- <kph-pcname> = Name of your computer in the institute. e.g. informatik.kph.uni-mainz.de
- <kph-port> = Port number of your computer within the KPH. e.g. RDP 3389
- <local-port> = any port number > 1000. You access this locally. e.g. 12345
Now you can establish a connection on your local computer to the KPH computer using the <local-port>. e.g. by putting localhost:12345 as RDP-Client destination.
Simply terminate the tunnel at the end of the session.
Older versions of windows:
Alternatively for older versions of windows your can use the program PuTTY. Please follow the instructions for Generating a SSH key with PuTTY.
Update: May 15, 2020 - Due to a serious security incident on the university's HPC systems, all SSH keys used so far lose their validity with immediate effect.
The ZDV changed the type of connection for the univeristy email from StartTLS (port 143) to SSL (port 993). You can modify this in the settings of your email software.
