NUS EZXCESS Disruption

I'm sure quite a lot of you non-domain users experienced trouble logging into the LAN or Wireless last Friday. The problem revolved around your credentials not being accepted even though you entered the correct password.

NUS IT admitted the problem in an email sent out today. It however didn't prescribe any solutions or workarounds until then. However IF this problem does recur, there IS a workaround:

1. Login via WebVPN
2. Set Proxy to "proxy.nus.edu.sg:8080" for your browser (or any other software that requires access).
3. To see how to set a proxy for the entire OS please read my previous post

That should serve as a temporary workaround until the engineers fix the problem :)
