You need to type it into the ADDRESS bar. If you're not sure what that is try pressing Ctrl-L and then type the address.

Works for me, using Opera browser.

Comes up with 'Application and Network Access Portal'

What browser are you using and can you get into other https sites!

I get this (Firefox 20 Beta 2, with Java disabled as security experts recommend).

Site functionality may be limited because of the following:
Your browser does not allow Java applets to run.
The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is not installed on this device, or the installed JRE version is older than version 1.5.
To resolve these issues:
Configure the browser settings to allow Java applets to run, and then access this site again.
Download and install JRE 1.5 (or higher).
Alternatively, continue to the logon page with limited site functionality.

'Continue' takes me to a login screen:
Application and Network Access Portal

I get the same message but without knowing where I am going to end up I am not going to access it.
by the way i have java installed so why am I being asked to install it again

There have been about 3 Java updates in the last month - it is full of vulnerabilities. Hackers are finding them all the time.
