Getting an error regarding a proxy connection.

Hi I'm trying to apply to a college, Folsom Lake College, but whenever I go to access the website I'm met with this error.

ERROR

A proxy connection has been detected. To connect to California Community Colleges you must disable anonymizing services. This may include:

  • Tor web browser
  • VPN connections
  • Anonymizing browser plugins


I'm unsure as to why this is happening as I dont have anything listed on the message. This error also appears on every device I own, I've even tried to reset my router but to no avail. What do I do?

  • Hi Angelica, Tee, and Casey,

    I too am having the same proxy issue and am unable to register. I know how to reach the California Community Colleges Help Desk at 1-877-247-4836 available 24 hours a day 7 days a week or by email for further assistance with this issue, but I chose to find an answer by googling instead. I was happy to find this page, where many others seem to experience the very same problem.

    Yet, you keep creating tickets, privately emailing people and directing them somewhere else. Wouldn't it be more useful to post a resolution publicly so anyone having the same issue can immediately find this page by googling, and have his/her issue resolved right then and there?

    It's 2022 people! The humanity has already figured out how to build a functional, user-friendly web site. Your web master needs to be fired.
