IT Services Alerts - Change to internet configuration on some College computers

Last Updated: Wednesday 16th May 2012

The internet configuration on all computers in the College computer rooms has been changed slightly as part of an improvements process to the College network services. Previous functionality should not be impacted, however some changes should be noted, as follows.

Users of PCs in the College computer rooms will note it is no longer necessary to provide a username and password upon accessing external web pages for the first time, nor for any other external internet resources.

Users of Macs in the College computer rooms should be aware that, upon accessing an external website, they will be required to login to an authentication webpage and leave the subsequent 'keep alive' webpage open in order to maintain access to all external internet resources.  See our podcast illustrating how this system works.

Please report any problems to the IS Services Helpdesk
