Learn about the Web Proxy service.

Off-Campus Access Discontinued

Web Proxy service is no longer available for off-campus access, effective on July 13, 2017. However, the web proxy service remains available for on-campus access, to allow systems on private space to acccess the Internet.

Why is Web Proxy no longer offered off-campus?

  1. The Web Proxy service insecurely transmitted network credentials
  2. The infrastructure on which the Proxy operated was end-of-life and insecure. 
  3. There are established services that are better for access from off-campus.

What should I use to connect instead?

  • You can continue to use the webproxy service on campus.
  • For off-campus remote access, connect through the UC San Diego VPN service.
  • You can also Talk with Library Support about access options for their resources.
  • Contact your local system administrator. 

For questions or assistance with connections, contact the ITS Service Desk at servicedesk@ucsd.edu.
