Using Library Proxy Server with Safari on iPhone 3G

Searching databases on the go? Here’s how to set up and use the library proxy server with Safari on the iPhone 3G. Note: You must be using WiFi to connect to the Library Proxy Server and you must repeat these steps for each WiFi network to which you connect.

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Select WiFi
  3. Select the WiFi Network to which you are connected
  4. In the WiFi Networks window, tap on the arrow to the right of your WiFi network name
  5. Your IP Address selection should be DHCP
  6. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen to HTTP Proxy
  7. Select "Auto"
  8. In the URL box, type: Be sure to include "http://" and do not insert any empty spaces before or after the URL
  9. Open Safari. When you come to a UC- or UCB-licensed resource, you will be asked to CalNet authenticate
  10. When you are done, return to Settings and turn the HTTP Proxy to "Off"
