The University Internal Network
The computer network at the University is distributed on three sites in the city of Hebron (Wadi Al-Harya, Abu Rumman, and Ein Sara) connected to each other by optical fiber cables through PALTEL. A server room was established in each site to manage the local area network (LAN) at that location and to secure permanent connection to other sites via the Virtual Private Network (VPN) with Internet access at each location.
