Does anyone have a working stanza for Mid-Atlantic Venture Capital and Private Equity Directory and willing to share?  

Thanks,

Re: Groups with different access to same vendor. How?

Thanks for your response. The second approach is what I have been trying to move to. However, as per my quote from the documentation, I don't think this will quite work.


The URL line appears after the Title line. URL must be followed by the URL that is normally used to access this database. EZproxy automatically treats the host name in this URL as though it appears on its own Host line in the current database configuration. This URL is used when generating the default menu page.

Using your 2nd example, EZProxy will create an automatic "HOST" entry based on the URL. EZProxy will also use the first config entry to match that host when proxying a request. So if someone from "Campus 2" tried to access gale, EZProxy matches the first entry with a "infotrac.galegroup.com" host (Campus 1 config entry) and will deny access to the user from Campus 2.

I need to go back and re-test this as it has been some time, but I believe that this was the conclusion I came to which matches what is written in the documentation.

If EZProxy would simply test against _each_ matching "HOST" entry (implicit or not) instead of the _first_ then this would work great.

You can do this, but it either takes a bit of work outside EZproxy to accomplish, or you need to make heavy use of the groups feature inside of EZproxy.

In the first case, using Gale as an example, you start by not putting the LocationID into the proxy stanza, then you build web pages specific to each campus that contains a LocationID for that campus.  It sounds like this may be what your predecessor was doing with the auth scripts that you reference.

For example:

Title Gale/Infotrac/PowerSearch Databases
URL http://infotrac.galegroup.com/itweb/
DJ galegroup.com
DJ google.com
DJ readspeaker.com

This is the standard stanza from http://www.oclc.org/support/documentation/ezproxy/db/gale.htm, but without the <Location ID> after itweb.  Then you construct web pages to pass the Location ID into the proxy links:



For the EZproxy groups case, you'll need to create a group per campus, and define the stanza multiple times for each group, embedding the different LocationIDs into the proper group stanzas.

For example:

Group Campus1

Title Gale/Infotrac/PowerSearch Databases
URL http://infotrac.galegroup.com/itweb/CampusID1
DJ galegroup.com
DJ google.com
DJ readspeaker.com

Group Campus2


And then place your patrons into the proper groups via user.txt:

::group Campus1
::file=campus1.txt
::group Campus2
::file=campus2.txt

or whatever mechanism that you use to differentiate between the campus users (IP address, LDAP, etc).

Either way, you still face a problem with your discovery layer:  Your discovery tools have to be able to present the right content to the right campus, and that is a completely different problem.  

The tools will have to have similar knowledge of the patron's campus, be able to limit search results to that campus' products, and treat each campus as a separate entity for indexing and search results.  If your discovery tools use your proxy server, you will need to be able to have multiple indexing instances for each of the accounts.

Quoting from the docs:
 
In particular, EZproxy can vary access between databases provided by two different vendors (e.g. Gale Business ASAP versus EBSCO Business Source Plus), but normally cannot vary access between two databases provided by the same database vendor (e.g. Gale Business ASAP versus Gale Expanded Academic ASAP).

 So is anyone doing this? If so what solution did you come up with?

Using their example we have Gale Business which can be accessed from Main Campus or Branch Campus. Then Gale Expanded can only be accessed from Main Campus.

It is not possible to write the config file in this way so I am investigating a work-around for this. It seems like an external script will be necessary even though I wish to avoid that. My predecessor created individual auth scripts for every branch campus/main campus combination (we have multiple branch campuses) but this is becoming un-maintainable. We also would like to be have the same starting point URL for everyone so we can set it in our EBSCO discovery layer.

Just looking for ideas.

Thanks

force login to a database when on-site

We would like to force a login to one of our databases when users are on campus.  Is there a way to exclude one resource from the automatic IP authentication in the config file? 

 

I would be most appreciative of any solutions that  people might have to offer.

 

Thanks,

Stacey

Re: force login to a database when on-site

Stacy,

Just place the resource entry before the IP statements.

Problem with Proquest/EZProxy

Hi,

We were using a very old configuration in config.txt that stopped working several weeks ago.  Today, I cut and pasted the appropriate configuration from OCLC:

HTTPHeader X-Requested-With
T ProQuest New Platform
URL http://search.proquest.com/ip?accountid=[your Account ID]
NeverProxy order.proquest.com
NeverProxy rss.proquest.com
DJ proquest.com
HJ gateway.proquest.com
DJ umi.com
HJ fedsearch.proquest.com
DJ medicalevidencematters.com

And now it works fine after authenticating through EZProxy, but on campus clients (those in excluded IP address ranges) suddenly don't.

The link on our page is: https://ezproxy.linfield.edu/login?url=http://search.proquest.com/socabsshell/advanced?accountid=12106

If you're not in an excluded address range, that URL takes you directly to the EZProxy login page, you login and get right to Proquest.  On the other hand, if you are in an excluded address range, you get a 404 page not found error.  The location field still contains the above address, so it looks to me as if the 404 is coming from the EZProxy server.

Anybody have any idea about what's going on?

RE:Problem with Proquest/EZProxy

This is happening with us as well – noticed from only certain ip addresses – but all of them inside the ip ranges accepted by Proquest.  Right now it works for me, but not the patron.  I have no idea except to ask ProQuest about it.  Calls to us came from a lately associated institution, so I was wondering if it was something about our networking, but this seems to confirm that is is a ProQuest glitch.

RE:Problem with Proquest/EZProxy

We discovered that a USC IP range (128.125.0.0-128.125.255.255) suddenly had gaps in it (e.g., 128.125.0.0.-128.125.76.24, 128.125.77.25-128.125.255.255, except there were several of these).  According to PQ, it happened on August 20th and they could give us no reason for this change, but they fixed it.  Have them take a careful look.

RE:Problem with Proquest/EZProxy

Hello,

 

I think you have a problem with the link that you are using on your website, in order to get the most updated link and the correct one, go to your ProQuest admin account -> User Interface tab -> Create a ProQuest Login URL -> select which database -> click on create link button.

 

Also, try the following configuration, it works fine with us:

 

HTTPHeader X-Requested-With

Title ProQuest

URL http://search.proquest.com/ip?accountid=62373

DJ proquest.com

HJ gateway.proquest.com

RE:force login to a database when on-site

If you have a unix / linux web server available to you all you need is to do the following:

1.      Create a folder at your public_html root

2.      Create an .htaccess and  .htpasswd for that folder

3.      Create a web page with a meta refresh tag redirect to the datatbase
