    Difficult for me to believe that a college would require certain proxies be used and not specify those proxies to the people who are supposed to use the network. If they have not, or you have lost the information you were given, you will need to contact the IT department.

    actually they already supplied the proxy to us but unfortunately not supplying all that availables. i accidentally come in contact with a proxy that is not known by public. so i'm just wondering if there is any way to find more of these kind of proxies

    If the school requires computers to go through a specific proxy server, then going through any other is not likely going to work. Stick to the rules of the college. Use whatever settings they tell you to.

    ok let me rephrase the sentence.
    actually the school didnt supply the proxies...i only knew about the proxy when asking a few former residents in the hostel.

    If the school requires a proxy server setting, they will most definitely supply that information.

    I suspect your request is a tad bit less than legitimate.

    There's absolutely no reason a college would not give a student access to the Internet. There's no legitimate reason for you to be posting this question here. The school would not use a proxy server and then force students to hunt and guess what that might be.

    i hope u r right. but the school never mentioned it officially, seriously. i only know the proxies from former hostel residents. btw, if what i'm asking here will be against the rules in any way, please close this thread. i'm sorry :(

    Clearly, this is against the rules. If the school wants you to have access to the service, it will supply the necessary information.

    I'm quite certain that if you're in college your reading skills are sufficient to digest the TSG Rules and understand the parts about hacking and password assistance!

    Your time here will be very short if future posts are of this quality.
