Hi Guy,

I'm not sure what goes wrong, but the proctor is not able to validate 
the resources. The error is:

Access  : Browse resources
Resource: /res/msu/physicslib/msuphysicslib/05_1D_Motion/msu-prob54.problem
Action  : Invalid Access


Sorry ...
This action is currently not authorized.

Any tips on how to get beyond this?

PS: As a separate comment - note that the URL is not encrypted even 
though I set it to be so.
