HTTP Proxy

The HTTP proxy server enables you to access web pages outside the AIP network not directly, but via a central server. This might be necessary if a computer is connected to a sensitive network segment without direct access to the Internet, or to access electronic journals from a VPN client.

In these cases, you have to configure a HTTP proxy in your web browser. For the popular Mozilla Firefox, follow these steps:

  • Open "Settings" and then "General settings"
  • scroll down to "Connection settings"
  • check "Manuall HTTP configuration" and enter the proxy server  name "" and the port "3128"
  • make sure the proxy is used for FTP and HTTPS, too
  • enter "," in the field for "no proxies"
  • Save the configuration.
