Subject: [saml-dev] Questions about dry run

I have a few questions about the dry run, which I need to secure the right facilities at Sun. My apologies that this has not
been confirmed yet, but being out of the country and trying to coordinate it make things difficult.

Robert Philpott has already asked several questions, but I still haven't seen any replies. PLEASE review these
questions, which I have inserted below in case you no longer have it:

Hey folks - I'm lining up network access for the dry run. I've asked them to allow http, ftp, email, and VPN
protocols through the firewall.  Anything else?

Other network questions:

   1.Do we want a DHCP server set up for the local network?
   2.What about a DNS server?  I would think it would be easiest to just configure an etc/hosts file that we all
share, but I thought I'd ask.  I'm not sure I'll have time to configure a system for this here, so I would probably need
someone else to step up to the plate.
   3.Regardless of whether we want DHCP, I assume a bunch of the boxes will need static addresses.  We should
agree on ranges of address for each company to use.  Someone want to propose something?

I did propose something for address ranges, but have seen no reply to that either. Here is that proposal again for your

What about a netmask of and 192.168.x.y where:
x would range from 1-N (N being number of participants, assigned in alphabetical order)
y would be 1-M (M being the number of machines a participant needed)

Additional information that I need includes:

- How many people from each company are planning to attend?
- How many machines will each of you bring with?
- What would you expect to be provided?

I'm not trying to be pushy at all, but without input from all participants on these questions and issues we can't make the
necessary progress. If someone wanted to volunteer to create a network diagram that shows all participants, their
machines and any other equipment that would be great.

I will be putting together an agenda sometime today or over the weekend for the call this next Tuesday. Feel free to
send input. I'm leaving Munich for Paris at noon and just can't do it any sooner.
