University Firewalls and Proxies

I really have a problem with my University Internet Connection. It is very fast and reliable etc…

BUT

I think the whole university intranet firewall isn’t properly configured. Many times, while I am working, I simply cannot access websites that use SSL (the https thing). Not even Google search.

The funny thing is that it does not happen every time. Sometimes ssl negotiation succeeds, sometimes it gets stuck in a loop till it fails. Very frustrating and annoying.

If anyone knows a work-around to this except the “don’t use the SSL thing”, I would be grateful if he shares his knowledge with me.

Even if there is no work around, I am setting up a proxy server for just getting away from this issue, really.

I may make a post on how I got the last one DONE.
