The Informatikdienste operates a webproxy which helps in two things:
When you need to configure the proxy manually, its name is proxy.ethz.ch and the port 3128.
To help you configuring the proxy, we have set up a config script:
If you want to use this service from outside ETHZ (e.g. from your home computer) you will be asked for a username and password. This is your NETHZ account, which you got by letter from the Personalabteilung of ETHZ. This will allow you to access ETH-wide services from home. However, there is one big problem with this: Your NETHZ password will be transmitted in clear. So please be careful from where you are using the proxy service.
