    Thumbs up Navy Microsoft Home Use Program (HUP)

    Microsoft Office software for $20... Just one more reason for people to get their @navy.mil email account up and running.

    The Navy Microsoft Home Use Program (HUP) pilot is targeted to Reserve Force personnel including: all Drilling Reservists; Full Time Support personnel; Voluntary Training Unit members; and members of the Civil Service currently employed by the Navy Reserve. The HUP pilot allows authorized personnel to obtain a licensed copy of Microsoft Office applications to install and use on a home computer for the low cost of the media and shipping. This phase of the HUP pilot will run for 45 days, beginning 15 August 2008 and end 30 September 2008. The clock is ticking.

    Eligible members may order online at the HUP web site. To access this web site, members must use the unique program code provided to their NMCI email account. After registering at the HUP website with your unique program code an email will be sent to your NMCI (@navy.mil) address that includes a link to the Microsoft ordering site.

    With a CAC reader you can check your Navy email from home by visiting https://webmail.nmci.navy.mil

    Don't forget that the DoD and Navy also provides free antivirus and firewall software from companies like McAfee, Symantec, and more. The sofware is available free of charge for home use at https://www.infosec.navy.mil/av/index.jsp and https://www.jtfgno.mil/antivirus/home_use.htm

    The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) has licensed free anti-spyware software for all armed forces personnel to use on personal computer systems. To download the free anti-spyware software, go to the DISA Web site at https://iase.disa.mil/sdep

    As a side note, students should ask their college about special programs like "Student Select Software" and "Student Licensing Software". Many popular programs are available to college students at dramatically reduced prices.

    For example:
    MS Office Enterprise 2007 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access, Publisher, OneNote, Groove, InfoPath, Communicator)
    MSRP = $679 // Student Select Price = $100 // Student Licensing Price = $100

    Adobe Acrobat 9.0 Professional
    MSRP = $499 // Student Licensing Price = $75

    Adobe CS3.3 Master Collection
    MSRP = $2,499 // Student Licensing Price = $520

    I'm going to try it out, and let you all know how it worked out. My new laptop came with the Office & Student 2007. I'll see what we get for 20 dollars, and if it is Vista compatible...

    A tale of two networks...

    I just sent NMCI an email. I think I will call them, it looks like green side (with USMC.MIL address) will be SOL. I will check and advise....
    I believe you must have a @navy.mil address to qualify for HUP, but that does not mean greenside is SOL.

    First of there are basically two NMCI networks. Yes, it stands for Navy & Marine Corps Internet (NMCI) but there is a Navy NMCI and a Marine NMCI and the two accounts do not talk to each other. Typically most military personnel only get access to one, but FMF Corpsmen are once again an exception to the rule.

    All SelRes sailors are eligible for access to the Navy NMCI and a @navy.mil email address.

    A SelRes sailor assigned to a Marine unit is often given access to the Marine NMCI and given a @usmc.mil email address.

    Your primary duty station should determine which account is linked to your CAC and which account goes on the "exceptions list". I will assume most of your time is spent at a USMC installation (ie. SMCR RTC) so establishing the Marine NMCI as your primary account makes sense since you must regularly access Marine NMCI computers there.

    However, you should go to your NOSC IT Shop and request to be placed on the "exceptions list" so you may access to the Navy NMCI computers at the NOSC and obtain your @navy.mil email address.

    The mission of FMF Corpsmen assigned to Marine units requires access to both networks. Mission failure will result if you are unable to access the computer at your Marine duty station and while on orders with your Marine unit. Mission failure will result if you are unable to access the computer at your NOSC and while away on orders at Navy commands or attending training at Navy courses. (If you are assigned to a joint services command then you will often need to get on those networks as well.)

    Your primary login will be linked to your CAC and you will access the system in the standard manner with your CAC and PIN. Your secondary login will not be linked to your CAC but through the network exceptions list and you will access the system in the old way with your username and password.

    remote access
    @navy.mil = https://webmail.nmci.navy.mil
    @usmc.mil = https://webmail.nmci.usmc.mil

    Little tip: When calling the NMCI Help Desk select the option based on which account you need help with, not what service you are in. The NMCI Help Desk recording implies they want to know if your are USN (option 1) or USMC (option 2). What they are really asking is what account do you need help with: @navy.mil (option 1) or @usmc.mil (option 2).

    Of course some joke that NMCI really stands for No More Connection to the Internet...

    Umm no good for me I mmight have to wait till I actually get to my NOSC to take advantage of this... I did download and install the Symantic Antivirus software, worked really good, and it was actually faster than the Norton 360 my new laptop came with. Even though they are the same company I feel the 360 was too bloated with other crap, and didn't want to spend the 50-60 dollars a year to keep it.

    First let me start with Thank You for posting this thread, I am sure this will help a lot of people out.

    I have a question about members must use the unique program code provided to their NMCI email account? are you refering to your PIN#? I tried logging into HUP site and it would not except the code. Any help would be great.

    Again Thank You.

    I apologize for the delayed response. There are several versions of the HUP floating around the military. Hopefully you can get in on one of those.

    My unique program code was sent to my NMCI (@navy.mil) email address. It is an alpha-numeric code just for this program. It took a month to get the installation DVD, but considering I saved around $600 I was not too worried about the delivery delay.
