Due to recent hacker intrusions, the ARO has been forced to implemented a white-list policy to limit access to all ARO computers.

Any and all users of ARO computing facility will be required to submitted the IP address of the computer from which they plan to access the ARO telescopes. This IP must be communicated to the ARO staff prior to your observing dates to allow time to include the IP in our system.

If you do not know your IP address then you can determine it by going to this web site:

http://ipinfodb.com/

Scroll down towards the bottom of the page and you will find your IP listed. This is the IP that the outside world knows you as and is the IP we need to include your computer in our trusted list.

Please email your IP, along with your name and affiliation to tfolkers@email.arizona.edu and jastier@email.arizona.edu.

We are sorry for any in-convenience this may cause but we are forced to take these measures to ensure the integrity of our systems.
