Visitor IP Service

OIT Visitor IP Service provides Internet service to devices not registered in the Princeton University Host Database when they are attached via Ethernet to the guestnet network in the guest rooms of Palmer House. (Palmer House is a University guest house.)

Devices registered in the Princeton University Host Database do not receive Visitor IP (VIP) Service. Instead, they ordinarily receive OIT Mobile IP Service when visiting guestnet.

Visitor IP Service should not be confused with Temporary Visitor Wireless Network Access, a different service that provides short-term Internet connectivity to wireless devices brought by visitors to select portions of the University campus.
