Configuring Google Chrome on Macintosh

[Return to Stanford Proxy Home]

SETTING UP PROXYING IN GOOGLE CHROME

These instructions are for the latest version of Chrome. For earlier versions see these slightly different instructions.

  1. Click the wrench icon in the browser toolbar then click Settings to open the Settings dialog box.

  2. Click the link at the bottom of the screen that says Show advanced settings.

  3. Scroll down to the Network section and click the Change proxy settings button.

    You should see the Network dialog box with Proxies highlighted and a list with the heading Select a protocol to configure.

  4. Check and highlight Automatic Proxy Configuration in the list of protocols.

    You should see an input box labled URL under the heading Proxy Configuration File

  5. Enter the following URL in the URL input box:
  6. http://www-sul.stanford.edu/apcproxy/suproxy.pac

    It's best to copy the URL from these instructions. Make sure not to include any spaces before or after the URL.

    The dialog box should look something like this image when you are finished, but note that the image shows only part of the proxy URL.

  7. Click OK then Apply and close all the dialog boxes you opened.

HOW PROXYING WORKS

  • Your browser is now configured to use Stanford's proxy server for resources that are restricted to Stanford users. Any other Internet connections will not go through the proxy server.

  • When you connect to a restricted resource, you will see an intermediate screen that provides a link you can follow to the remote site. If you have problems getting to any pages on the site, please fill out this problem report form.

TURNING PROXYING OFF

  • You shouldn't need to turn proxying off unless you are using a laptop that is sometimes connected through the Stanford network and sometimes connected from off-campus.

  • If you need to turn proxying off for any reason, simply return to the Network dialog box and uncheck the Automatic Proxy Configuration option under Select a protocol to configure. Make sure to choose OK then Apply to save the changed setting and then close all the dialog boxes you opened.
