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).



...so you can only use a browser then? You can't use other applications? This sounds like the sort of system they have a hotels and such like...but there are ways to get around these...one way was even put in a Linux magazine a few weeks ago. Have a search around
