Method of use

You cannot connect to an outside network simply by connecting your PC to an information outlet with authentication function.

To connect to an outside network, you must be authenticated by Keio ID of the Keio Single Sign-on system (keio.jp).

The authentication is performed through your Web browser, so it can be done without dependency on the type of OS (Windows, MacOS, Unix compatible OS).

The authentication method using Internet Explorer is introduced below. The method is basically identical when using another browser (Netscape, Safari, Firefox. etc.)

  • Proxy setting
    When a proxy is set on a browser, please set
    as the URL that does not use a proxy.
    It is not essential to set a proxy.

    • Start Internet Explorer
    • Instead of the web page (start-up page), the authentication page is displayed.
    • Enter your Keio ID (keio.jp) user name and password and select [Send].
    • If authentication is successful, the following message is displayed.
    • To refer to another web page, restart Internet Explorer to display and operate its window.
  • Completion method

    • Close the window you used for authentication.
    • A few tens of seconds will pass before completion.



  • Only an authenticated person can use the information outlets with authentication function.
    Do not allow another person to use a computer connected with authentication.
    (If another person is discovered using the PC, the Shinanomachi ITC will suspend all system registrations.)
  • Please allow leeway in your schedule for using the service.
    In particular, when trouble occurs during connection, it may be necessary to conduct a detailed investigation. Thank you for your understanding.
    Because the system is operated by the small staff at the Shinanomachi ITC, according to circumstances, normal service may be unavailable.
  • Please thoroughly master the methods of using the equipment and network and obey related rules.
    It may be disrupted by malicious hackers, or you may unintentionally break a law, or cause trouble to other people.
    In principle, each user of the Internet bears personal responsibility, so use the system by confirming not only how to use the equipment and software, but also laws and regulations.
    And use the system so you avoid any ethical or moral problems.
    If you notice any trouble, immediately inform the Shinanomachi ITC.
