What happens to my College-owned laptop when I change my password while off-campus?
If you change your password while you are off campus your laptop will not be immediately updated with the new password because you will not be connected to the Bates College network. Until you return your laptop to campus you will have to use your old password to access your laptop and your new password to access all network resources. Once you return your laptop to campus it will be automatically updated with the new password.
NOTE: If you use the VPN to connect to campus from the Internet your laptop will be automatically updated with the new password.
