Troubleshooting tips:

Do you keep getting sent to this page? 

If so, one of the following reasons may be the cause.

You are connected to VPN. (affects Internet Explorer only)

If you are connected to VPN and browsing the internet, your internet settings must be the same as if you were physically at ESMT. Unfortunately, when you log onto your computer from off-campus, Internet Explorer loads a different temporary proxy setting than the one that your computer uses on campus. Hence, you will need to manually overide Internet Explorer's temporary off-campus proxy setting each time that you log onto your computer from off-campus and browse the internet through VPN.

You brought your computer to campus in hibernate/sleep mode. (affects Internet Explorer only)

Internet Explorer loads a different temporary proxy setting when you startup and log onto your computer from off campus. If you bring your computer to campus in hibernate or sleep mode, your computer keeps the temporary proxy setting. Hence, you will need to manually overide Internet Explorer's temporary off-campus proxy setting each time that you bring your computer to campus in hibernate/sleep mode. An alternative solution to manually changing the proxy settings is to restart your computer when you come to campus.

You are connected to both the wired network and the ESMT guest wireless network.

If you are connected to the ESMT guest wireless network, your internet browser may be confused about which network to send your network traffic through. Disconnect from the guest wireless network to resolve this problem.
