You can enable this by adding the audit event:

 	Login.Failure.Password

such as:

 	Audit Most Login.Failure.Password

I would only recommend using it in those scenarios where the password
is something like last name from an ILS or some other such fact that isn't 
a secret held only by the remote user, but whether or not to use these 
options is left to the discretion of the institution implementing EZproxy.

There is also an error regarding the related Login.Success.Password and 
Login.Success.Groups that is corrected in the upcoming EZproxy 3.6f.

As far as e-mailing on events, that is planned indeed planned as an 
upcoming enhancement, although it's not scheduled for release for 2-3 
months.

All database vendors see your EZproxy as accessing from the same IP 
address, so in general, the access that is available to EZproxy is the 
access that it can provide to your remote users.  Groups provide a 
mechanism to limit which database vendors are available, but cannot 
normally help create restrictions between databases provided by the same 
vendor.  The exception occurs when it is possible to give EZproxy general 
IP access to the bulk of your databases, and then provide access to the 
restrict database using some scripted username/password method.

Another option is to use a separate instance of EZproxy with a different 
source IP address, then configure things so Gale allows access for the 
alternate address.  You would have to have these students enter through 
the alternate address.

If you would like to discuss the specifics of your setup in further 
detail, please feel free to follow up with me off-list.

another way to handle Sage URLs

 
It would mean changing all the Sage URLs you have on your web pages and catalog, but Sage does provide another option for the formation of their URLs, see https://www.exchange.iu.edu/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://www.sagepub.com/journalmapping/JournalMapping.aspx
This form would have them all begin with https://www.exchange.iu.edu/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://online.sagepub.com followed by the ISSN number of the journal.
 
This way you only need the EZproxy entry:

T Sage Publications

U http://online.sagepub.com

DJ sagepub.com

	www.sagepub.com/journalmapping/JournalMapping.aspx will get you there without
the need to login to IU's Exchange server for the redirect.

usage limits

I'm thinking of imposing usage limits on downloading because I've gotten emails from two different vendors saying downloading is excessive. The problem is that I'm not sure what would be a good limit to use -- we are a medium-sized library. Is there any good rule of thumb for this?

Thanks

RE: usage limits

Kathy --

We're also a medium-sized library (5500 FTE) and we set ours to:

UsageLimit -enforce -expires=1440 -interval=60 -MB=20 -transfers=5000
Global 

But I can't comment on whether it is a good/bad limit to use -- we've
only been doing it for a couple of weeks.  We did have to move
ProQuest's Dissertation and Theses out of the Global limits because 300p
PDFs were causing problems, but things seem to be working OK now.

I would be really interested to read how other libraries have their
Usage Limits set up as well.

Getting cookies.htm when accepting all cookies

Hi,

I've seen messages similar to this in the archives, but no particular 
fix, so I'm hoping someone can help. My user is getting sent to the 
cookies.htm error page even though she has her browser set to accept all 
cookies. This is happening with both IE (v. 6) and Firefox (didn't get 
the version number since I was so surprised the problem persisted when 
we changed browsers!). She's on Windows XP (Home ed. 2002) and is using 
a cable modem. From virtually the same set up at *my* home, all works 
fine. The problem isn't specific to any one database; it's happening 
with all of them. I'm out of ideas. Has any one solved this particular 
problem?

Thanks!

Firewall on the computer?  I can make that happen on mine by turning up the

MathSciNet (proxying links within .pdfs)

Hello,

I see from a search in the list archives that this question has been  
asked before, but I was unable to find a definitive answer.  Is there  
a way to proxy MathSciNet (or any resource for that matter) so that  
links within .pdfs are also proxied?  MathSciNet has .pdfs with links  
in them, but the links aren't proxied even when the .pdf is on the  
same server.

I suspect this can't be done but if there is a way, would you mind  
sharing your configuration?

Thanks,
