Remote access to restricted web pages
Some Informatics web pages are restricted so that only local users can gain access. (For advice on how to do this for your own web pages, see the FAQ). This page gives guidance on how local users can gain access to restricted web pages when not on a local machine.
- Pages restricted to ed.ac.uk
- These are normally visible only from computers within the University of Edinburgh. However, access to such pages can be gained from outside machines using the University's proxy cache or VPN services.
- Pages restricted to inf.ed.ac.uk
- There should be very few web pages restricted to inf.ed.ac.uk. Anything that should be restricted to Informatics users should be Cosign-protected (ie checking who you are, not where you are). If you come across pages that are restricted to inf.ed.ac.uk, then please let the owner of the web page know, or report it via the support form.
