This policy applies to all devices and services attached to the Elon network.

3.0 Policy

Elon University will allow ten (10) unique MAC addresses per port to prevent denial of service attacks on the Elon system. All MAC addresses located in residence halls will be reset annually. Elon University does not recommend the use of cable routers on the network.
