Connecting to the new college proxy.

Below are directions for PC and Mac Operating Systems. This configuration only needs to be done once and has no impact on your ability to surf the Web. To use the proxy you must have an Active Directory account. You can get one at https://cams.qc.cuny.edu. If you are having trouble getting an account please vist the OCT Help Desk (Dinning Hall, Rm. 150).

NOTE: When logging into the proxy server you must specify your domain. Use INSTR\<USERNAME> for Students and Guests. Use QC\<USERNAME> for Faculty and Staff.
