links you see in the browser's address line with colleagues which do not have a
TAU computer account ( University's Username and Password).

to translate the links you see to the real links by striping the string:
".rproxy.tau.ac.il" from the end of the hostname part of the url.

you need to use the following syntax:
If you wish to access the following link:

you will be asked to enter your TAU Username and Password and then you will enter the requested link.
