Internet Access


  1. In the VH, all the guest rooms have DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol) for direct Internet connection, i.e. no IP address, User ID or password is required for accessing the Wi-Fi enabled internet services through their laptop.

  3. All other areas have DHCP, but you need to configure your computer to use a proxy server with the supplied username/password. In order to configure DHCP, follow the steps below:
    • Go to Start >> Settings >> Control Panel >> Network Connections >> Local area Connection >> Properties
    • Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
    • Click Properties, select Obtain IP address automatically and Obtain DNS address automatically

  5. Next, you need to configure your browser to use one of the following proxy servers: OR OR OR OR
    Set the port number : 3128

    Proxy settings are configured as follows:

    • Go to Tools>>Internet Option>>Connections>>LAN Settings
    • Check 'Use a proxy server for your LAN' and 'Bypass proxy server for local addresses'
    • Set the desired proxy server (see pt. 2)
    • Click on Advanced Settings
    • In Exceptions, add *;172.*;localhost;

    • Go to Tools >> Options >> Network >> Settings
    • Select manual Proxy Configuration and set the desired proxy server (see pt. 2)
    • In "No Proxy for", add,, localhost,

    • Go to Wrench >> Options >> Under the Hood >> Change Proxy settings >> LAN Settings
    • Check 'Use a proxy server for your LAN' and 'Bypass proxy server for local addresses'
    • Set the desired proxy server (see FAQ 13)
    • Click on Advanced Settings
    • In Exceptions, add *;172.*;localhost;

  7. In the academic area, you can also uncheck "Proxy Sever" configuration, and attempt to access internet with any browser. You will get an authentication window. Upon authenticating with the supplied username password, you will get a page saying: "The browser window is used to keep your authentication session active…" You may then open a new window or new tab to access the internet.

  9. To use any other application such as mail IMAP/POP, SSH, FTP, Skype, Google Talk etc., you must first authenticate yourself by accessing the Internet through the browser and keep the authentication window minimized while you are accessing the application
