I'm at a public library (france). I have a http library login to access that wifi.
I just want to download some SFML zip to make some app, but many things are blocked, mainly https. I can't even access my gmail account. Must be for some security reason, they might like to be able to log everything. Seems all proxies are also blocked.
One person once told me that https might not work, or that sometimes Mac can have problems connecting. For example when I type enter into the Chrome omnibox, it seems to always get an error because it defaults to https. I only can access google with firefox on http://
I don't want to hide that fact I'm doing that, I just want some way of getting that file, I won't just go back to home and then come back here, even if that takes 20min to download it.
I don't want to create a linux proxy etc, I just want to know why macs are having connectivity problems.
