First of all, the AUP does apply to all computers on campus whether
owned by MSU or not...however, I would suggest that you refer to the
Trusted Networks Document attached to the bottom of the current
Second, good luck on getting the legal staff to answer anything!

I'll try to keep this message short, sweet and coherent. Is there any
type of template that MSU uses as a disclaimer message for all
workstations/servers that are owned by MSU? In corporate world
typically when you log onto a computer there is a logon banner message
which basically says...
"this computer is owned by Michigan State University, blah blah blah,
don't do bad stuff, blah blah blah"...?
Considering that this campus is a supporter of "academic freedom" I know
this could be a touchy subject :-), but at the same time I don't want a
hacker to "own" the computer or the data that he or she could be storing
on it. This might even be a question to post to the lawyers. Doug
suggested that I ask around so this is probably a good start.
