In order to prevent spam comming from the GHB network, direct SMTP access (sending mails) has been disabled. To send mails from inside the GHB network please use the mailrelay or a web based mail service. Receiving mails using POP3/IMAP or web based services is not affected by this measure. To send mails over the realay please activate tls.


The GHB network provides DHCP service to make lower administrative overhead and make sure the network is easy to use. Once you've switched your network configuration to DHCP you'll get a guest IP assigned. Using that IP you can only access the GHB internal network (including this page where you can register for an account). If one of your guests needs a connection to the internet, please create a host on your account. As soon as you've set the correct MAC address for the host and switched to DHCP, the network will assign an IP address, from which you're allowed to access the internet, to you.


In order to stay up to date, you should use as your primary DNS server. This is an internal server which reads its data live from the user database. That DNS server is also distributed using the DHCP service.


In order to stay up to date, you should use / as your NTP time server. It's synchronized with PTB (Physikalisch-Technischen Bundesanstalt in Braunschweig).
