How can I proxy only the initial EBSCOhost login page?

You can set up your proxy server to only proxy the initial login page and not the entire ebscohost.com domain. This will allow you to authenticate into EBSCOhost through your proxy server and then your proxy prefix will drop off the browser URL when redirected to an EBSCOhost session URL.

 

 

To enable access to only the EBSCOhost initial login screen through your III WAM proxy server:

Please remove all instances of ebscohost.com from the forward table and then use the following URL in your III WAM proxy forward table:

http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx

 

To enable access to only the EBSCOhost initial login screen through your EZproxy server:

Please remove all instances of ebscohost.com from the config file and then use the following entry in your EZproxy config file:

Title EBSCOhost databases

URL http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx

 

Please note that once you have made the change and saved the config file, you will then need to login to EZproxy Admin and "RESTART" the EZproxy server.
