Network Requirements

 

FGCU’s Computing Services offers a Pre-Scan option to make the connection process easier. The Bradford Networks Dissolvable Agent (Pre-Scan) allows students to scan their computers and fix any conflicting software problems prior to coming to campus. Please note that a full system scan by the Bradford Networks Campus Manager will still be required upon registration on campus.

The Bradford Networks Campus Manager registration system has a set of policies in place to scan your computer to verify the following credentials:

Current and up to date operating system:

  • Microsoft Windows 7
  • Microsoft Vista – Service Pack 1
  • Microsoft Windows XP – Service Pack 3
  • Mac - Mac OS X 10.1 or greater

Virus protection with latest updates:

  • If you do not have a valid PC antivirus solution, you can download Microsoft Security Essentials antivirus for PC’s free here(insert Link)
  • If you do not have a valid Mac antivirus solution, you can download Sophos for you Mac free here(insert link)

Multiple antivirus solutions conflict with one another and will cause you to fail the Bradford scan. Please note you must uninstall any previous antivirus solutions from your computer before you can install either of the items above.
