Access to Web Proxy
Access to Web Proxy, i.e. authenticated (username/password) access to Internet (only protocol HTTP
for the time being), is enabled together with access to the wireless network
The Web Proxy can be used also from external networks
(e.g. at home), and provides access to on-line journals or other services subscribed by
the University of Cagliari.
User and URL are logged for all proxy accesses.
Browser configuration for Web Proxy
Web browsers must be explicitely configured to use the Web Proxy, by setting the following
auto-configuration proxy URL:
Proxy configuration depends on the specific browser and operating system. As an example, the settings
for Firefox 60.2 on Linux are under
--> Network Proxy
. On the contrary
Google Chrome uses the proxy settings of the operating system.
The settings for manual configuration are the following:
- Proxy HTTP/HTTPS: proxy.dsf.unica.it port 8080
- No proxy for: w3.dsf.unica.it, localhost, 127.0.0.1
When prompted for authentication
, use the same credentials
(username/password) of the WIRELESS service. After one hour of inactivity
re-authentication is required.
