What is the proxy?

The proxy is our main cache.

You should not use your own cache in the browser because it will use up your disk quota. The proxy provides us all with one big cache, so if someone has viewed some page before, you will benefit because this whole page will be cached.

Why use the proxy?

Only sites within Israel (*.il) are accessible unless you use the proxy.

How do I configure the proxy?

  • Set up your browser to use automatic detection
  • If that doesn't work, choose automatic proxy configuration and in the URL text box, enter http://www.cs.huji.ac.il/proxy.pac (you may need to press "Reload")
  • If that doesn't work, choose manual proxy configuration using host wwwproxy.cs.huji.ac.il and port 8080.
