Tired of struggling to remember how to turn on and off the settings in your computer for Internet access through the UBC web filter? Things just got a lot easier. Thanks to recent updates to the web filter system, we are now able to greatly simplify the setup process. For Windows, you simply download a zip file containing two scripts. One script enables the proxy settings for use on campus networks, and the other disables the proxy settings for use at another WiFi hotspot. For Mac, you simply install a profile to your computer that sets things up automatically.
While previous setup instructions still work, they may not at some point in the future. We recommend that going forward you use the new instructions.
