TWAREN Users Meeting to Enhance Two-Way Communication
In order to continuously improve the maintenance and management of TWAREN, NCHC invited all delegates of Computer Centers and information service providers to provide their feedback as TWAREN users. In addition to an update on the maintenance of NCHC academic networks, a briefing was hosted concerning the valued added services provided by NCHC, such as webpage hosting services, DNS remote backup services, Layer2 VPN services, and remote proxy monitoring.
