When connecting to FASRC resources, you will use the username you chose when signing up for your account.
Your FASRC Unix username does not contain any symbols, and is not your email address/Harvard Key. It contains only letters and possibly numbers. For example: jharvard is a username, while firstname.lastname@example.org is not.
There are two exceptions:
- When connecting to the FASRC VPN, you will need to use your username + a VPN realm name. That realm name is almost always @fasrc unless you access a different realm for your work (for example, if you are in the NCF you will use @ncf).
Example: User jharvard would connect to the VPN as jharvard@fasrc
- When resetting your password, you will use your email address to request a password reset. This is the only place where your email address is used.
If a system requires your Harvard Key/Email address, that will be made clear in the login form details.
