Firefox 1.x (PC)

This section describes how to configure, enable, and disable the proxy server information for Firefox 1.x. It is best to configure the Web browser to go through the proxy server using the instructions below and then disable the settings until the next time you use Temple's wireless network or a public-access laptop Internet port, or the next time you access Temple's library databases. Otherwise, your Internet connection may be slowed down.

Configuring the proxy information

1. Click on the Tools menu and select Options.
2. If the General options are not displayed, click on the General icon on the upper left portion of the Options window.
3. Click on Connection Settings.
4. Click on Manual proxy configuration.
5. In the HTTP Proxy box, type: gate.temple.edu
6.
In the associated Port box, type: 8080
7. Click on OK.
8. Close and restart Firefox.

Now, when connected to the Internet, your Web session will be directed through Temple's proxy server and you will be prompted to enter a username and password. Enter your AccessNet username and password at this prompt.

Disabling the proxy server

1. Click on the Tools menu and select Options.
2. If the General options are not displayed, click on the General icon on the upper left portion of the Options window.
3. Click on Connection Settings.
4. Click on Direct connection to the Internet.
5. Click on OK.
6. Close and restart Firefox.

Re-enabling the proxy server

1. Click on the Tools menu and select Options.
2. If the General options are not displayed, click on the General icon on the upper left portion of the Options window.
3. Click on Connection Settings.
4. Click on Manual proxy configuration.
