|United Networks User Group|
Welcome to United Networks (UN), the user-supported user group and resource dedicated to effective networking, policies and information resources. UN was created officially in 1992 and brings together system administrators, network engineers, ISPs and other Internet organizations and users to create an entity capable of making a difference. To date, this philosophy has worked in several areas, such as: systems security, abuse reporting and response, protocol and information standards, user rights and other issues relating to users and the Internet in general.|
United Networks was formed to provide resources and support to a variety of
Users, Administrators and Organizations as they relate to computer and network
services, policies, education and security.
Currently, three levels of membership are recognized and they are:
Administrative Members, Group Members and Community Members.
Administration consists of dedicated Members who play an active role in the
oversight and direction of projects and missions of the User Group.
Group Members are the backbone of the User Group and consist of dedicated
Users and Organizations who help facilitate projects, missions and services of
the User Group. Members benefit directly from the User Group in that they are
