College offices and labs switched to enhanced internet access service

IS Services are introducing an enhanced method for accessing external internet resources for those using computers connected to the wired network in College offices and labs.  This enhanced service is being introduced to all areas on campus on a progressive basis during Monday, 28th May.  Off-campus areas will be switched to the new service in a second phase in the coming weeks.

The primary improvement is that you will only have to provide your username and password once, instead of having to authenticate multiple times, and then all internet services and applications requiring internet access will operate without further prompts for these details.

This service has already been successfully introduced to an initial subset of College offices and labs; to those using the staff wireless network; to students using the TCDconnect residential and wireless networks; and to the College computer rooms.

For detailed explanation of the benefits, impact, and podcast outlining the process, please visit the following IS Services web page: http://isservices.tcd.ie/internet/proxy-offices-labs.php 

If you have any queries about this change, please contact the IS Services Helpdesk.
