No. That's not at all a proxy. Once you power on the computer, and that you want to use Internet, say by Firefox, you are directly redirected to a webpage which asks you your university login & your university password. Once you have entered this stuff, you are logged on the network, and everything is okay. That's a little bit like ADSL where you need to type credentials before using the Internet (at the opposite of the cable). :-( Thanks.
