We have "opened" our proxy servers due to the Covid-19 pandemic for easier access. You don't need a VPN connection, just enable the proxy:


1

If you haven't already installed Mozilla Firefox, download it for your operating system and install it.

2

Start Mozilla Firefox and open the page https://laps.uni-bayreuth.de/proxy.
Install the UniBT-Proxy AddOn.

3

After the installation there should be a new Uni Bayreuth icon in the upper right corner of Firefox.

4

Now enable the UniBT Proxy AddOn by left-clicking on it.
Grey = AddOn disabled
Green = AddOn enabled

5

After opening the first external website you will be asked for username and password. Enter your uni username (without additions) and the corresponding password.

6

That's it! Please remember to always disable the UniBT Proxy AddOn when you no longer need it. Otherwise all your internet traffic will contnue to go through the Uni Bayreuth!
