Here you will find
instructions for using the FTP and Web proxies. Keep in
mind that depending on where you access the proxies from
(whether you are inside or outside of the BNL network), the
process will differ slightly.
For FTP, you will not be
required to enter any passwords to use the proxies while on the
BNL network. However, when accessing the proxies from an outside
network (e.g. anything not .bnl.gov), you will be required to
authenticate using a RSA SecurID Token. If you do not already
have one of these, please visit the RSA SecurID User Guide
for instructions on obtaining one.
Users who are only interested in
configuring their web browsers need NOT bother with RSA SecurID, as the web proxies will not be needed when you are
outside the BNL network.
ITD has implemented a Transparent Proxy
for applications that do not support HTTP/HTTPS proxy
configurations. However, all applications should still be configured (automatically
detect proxy settings or use wpad) to actively utilize the proxy server
whenever possible -- see the instructions below. Applications that
do not have this option should operate without issue going forward.
Proxy Configuration Instructions for Internal Network
Proxy Hostname and Port
ITD Unix supports a load balanced selection of HTTP proxy servers located
at the proxy.sec.bnl.local, port 3128. For specifics on
configuring individual web browsers, see the instructions above. Note:
If only one field is provided use this format: proxy.sec.bnl.local:3128
Users: If you are using Mac OS X and have difficulties resolving the name for
proxy.sec.bnl.local you will have to configure your machine to recognize
this as a valid domain.

Proxy Configuration Instructions for External (wireless) Visitor Network
For most software programs, the proxy auto-configuration script will be
sufficient. However, setting your proxy to auto-detect or no proxy will also
work since BNL is now running a transparent proxy.
Software programs that need a hard coded proxy web address should
use the following:
- Inside/Outside BNL - IP Address: 192.168.1.165, Port: 3128
