    Confirm [yes] to the security warning [edited by raincoaster: make up your own mind after reading the warning] and follow the instructions.
    (In some companies a proxy login dialog box will appear. You then need to type your company internet username and password).

  2. That’s very close to spam, but I’ll let it stand while I think it over. Also, editing out your instruction to say yes to the security warning; people should make up their own minds.
