Important security advice: Using private end devices
Using private computers can facilitate mobile working for employees of TU Darmstadt. Please make sure that you install up-to-date virus protection on your devices and keep the software you use up to date (install updates regularly). If you have Windows7 or even XP on your computer, please make sure to update it. This way you keep your own device and the TU network safe!
All owners of a TU-ID can use Jabber as an encrypted chat client. The client can be used in the TU network as well as mobile.
If you have a Cisco device as your business phone, you can also use Jabber to make calls. Furthermore you are reachable for calls under your business number.
If you have a Alcatel device as your business phone, we can register you as a client-based user on the Cisco system, if you wish.
