For those using the wired network in College offices and labs, it should not be necessary to enter proxy settings for any application, as explained on our page regarding internet access from College offices and labs. However, in certain circumstances exceptions may be required and so below are listed the generic proxy settings which you can use for applications that require internet access.
It is worth noting that sometimes, for security reasons, initially it may not be possible to use some internet applications which do not use standard protocols. Exceptions can be made, where technically possible and if access is required for College work. Please see our page on requesting additional external internet access.
