After returning to this ANU after a while, I've realised that ANU has changed their internet quota policy changing from a max of 80MB (topped up at a rate of 10MB a day) to a max of 1000MB (topped up at a rate of 1000MB a day).
As such, this means that you can do a whole lot of things with the data but the computers in the IT labs don't give you much freedom (administration restrictions) and a lot of people (including myself) prefer using their own laptop. As such these are the settings that would enable you to do just that:
1) Proxy Settings: wwwcache.anu.edu.au:80
2) Authentication Settings: University ID and Password
NB: This can only be done from an InfoCommons lab as wwwcache bars other IP addresses.
