Proxy Script Setup (for off-campus machines using a router)

Note: This document is for connecting to some University of Manitoba services from off-campus machines running through an internet router. MTS is used as an example.

When accessing certain University of Manitoba applications (such as Aurora INB or AntiVirus) from home via an internet router, you will need to go through a security interface called a proxy server using a proxy script. Once the proxy script is set up on your browser, it will allow you to interface with the University of Manitoba proxy server. Setting up this proxy script will not interfere with your regular internet browsing.
