    11          Welcome to GENI! <br/> This page tells you how to Sign Up for the GENI Portal. The portal is a web interface to the GENI Clearinghouse that manages GENI experimenters, projects and slices. This account will provide you with the right credentials for using the GENI testbed.

    22 == 1. Login to the Portal ==
    24 The GENI Portal leverages InCommon to provide single sign-on authentication.
    25 If you are affiliated with a US college or University that is a  [ member of the InCommon federation], simply login using your usual username and password to activate your GENI account. If you are not affiliated with an InCommon federated institution, you may request a GENI-only login.
    27 === Check if you can use your Institution's account ===

    30 <table border="0" width="1000">
    32       <tr>
    33          <td >
    34          If you want to check whether you can use your Institution's account to login:
    35          <ul>
    36            <li> Go to <a href=""> the GENI Portal </a> and press the 'Use GENI' button.
    37            </li>
    38            <li>
    39            Start typing your institution's name and if it is a member it will just show up; select it and press 'Continue'. If it does not appear in the list, read on to the next section.
    40            </li>
    41             <li>
    42            Pressing 'Continue' will transfer you to the familiar Login Page of your institution. Log in to your institution using your usual username and password. If you get an error after you login please send us <a href="">an email</a> with the error you got.
    43            </li>
    44            <li>
    45            If you successfully login, then follow the instructions in the next page, and press 'Activate'. <br/> <b> Congratulations, now you have access to the GENI Portal. </b> Now you need to
    46 <a href=""> join a GENI project </a>.

    57  </table>
    59 }}}
    61 === If your Institution is not a member of InCommon ===
    63 If you were not able to login to the GENI Portal through your Institution, you can request a GENI-only account. In order to do that, please fill out the form to [ request a GENI-only account].
    65 Once you receive an email verifying that we have created an account for you (this may take awhile), you can follow the [wiki:SignMeUpPortal#CheckifyoucanuseyourInstitutionsaccount above instructions] but as your Institution use 'GENI Project Office'.
    67 == 2. Become a member of  a GENI Project ==
    68 Now you should be able to login to the portal. However, in order to run experiments in GENI you would need to join or create a project. If you are:
    69   * a faculty member
    70   * or a senior technical member in a company or a university
    71 you can become a Project Lead and [#a2b.CreateaGENIProject create your own projects].
    73 Everyone else should join a project created by a Project Lead. You can ask any of your collaborators that fit the above criteria to create a project for you [#a2a.JoinaGENIProject to join].
    75 === 2a. Join a GENI Project === 
    76 After a project is created, you can try and join the project. In order to do that, do the following:
    79 {{{
    80 #!html
    81 <table border="0">
    83       <tr>
    84         <td>
    86         <img border="0" src="" alt="Create a GENI Project"  height="120" title="Join a GENI Project" /> </a>
    87        </td>
    88        <td >
    89          <ol>
    90             <li> In the <i>Home tab</i> click the <b> Join Project</b> button.</li>
    91            <li> From the list of projects find the one that was created for you or your class and click the <b>Join </b> button. <br/>
    92 Please make sure you select the right name.</li>
    94           </ol>
    95        </td>
    97     </tr>
    98  </table>
    99 }}}
    101 === 2b. Create a GENI Project ===
    102 A GENI account has no privileges outside of a Project; i.e. as long as you are not a member of a GENI Project you can not use any GENI resources. In GENI only Project Leads can create Projects. Any faculty member, or a person in a corresponding position in industry, can request to become a Project Lead and thus have the capability of creating GENI Projects.
