EZproxy 6.0 features several enhancements, including:
- Support for IPv6 addresses in the directives that support IPv4 addresses,
- Backward compatibility to run IPv4 mode without needing to update your config.txt or user.txt files, and
- Use of the OCLC Web Service Key (WSKey) for license management, which must be obtained from OCLC’s Developer Network before running EZproxy 6.0, as keys from previous versions of EZproxy will not work. See How to Request a WSKey for more details.
