Web Proxy Service
Many of NYU's web based resources (extended library resources, NYU MyTime, etc.) are restricted to local NYU computers. You can still use these resources from home provided you have a valid NetID and password. Simply follow the NYU proxy instructions, but instead of using the NYU proxy configuration file (http://proxy.nyu.edu/proxy.pac), use the CIMS proxy configuration file (http://cims.nyu.edu/u/proxy-pac).
NYU's proxy configuration file incorrectly instructs many computers on private (often home networks) to not use the proxy specifically when visiting NYU websites. The CIMS configuration file fixes this problem.
Note: We've already notified ITS and they are either unwilling or unable to fix the problem on their end which is why we are providing this alternative configuration.
