  • Enter the system settings by clicking on the cogwheel icon:
  • In the "Settings" menu, select "Wi-Fi" (1) and then select the network (2) to which you are connected.
  • In the configuration panel of your Wi-Fi network, select "Auto" (3) and in the URL box (4) enter http://sum.edu.pl/proxy.pac (it is important that the address is entered with the prefix http://....):
  • Close the network configuration by clicking on the "Wi-FI" option (5).
  • Restart the browser or the entire device before connecting for the first time.
  • From now on you can already browse the pages of electronic resources available from the SUM network. The browser will only ask you to log in, which is explained below.

  • The latest versions of IOS will first display a message that authentication is required.

  • Select 'Settings', then the system will take you to your WiFi settings and ask you to enter your student account login and password.
  • Log in to PROXY with your @365.sum.edu.pl domain email address and password.

Note: If you were browsing the web, even though you had previously logged in, the message "Authentication required" would show up again:

  • select 'Settings',
  • In the next window, where login and password are required, select "Cancel" without entering your data. On IOS systems older than version 13, you can select "OK" - without entering your login and password.

If this method does not work and the IOS still frequently requires you to log in, then follow the procedure below:

  • Check if IOS updates are available, if so, execute them.
  • Clear the browsing history and site data for the web browser you are using.
  • Switch the entire device off and on.
  • Launch your browser and log in to PROXY.
