Note: An issue has been identified where users were unable to download EBSCO eBooks to Android devices. To prevent this issue, follow this procedure:

  1. Add this text to config.txt/ezproxy.cfgconfig.txt:
    NeverProxy rps2images.ebscohost.com
  2. Restart EZProxy.

This added text tells EZProxy not to rewrite the links for the site that appears to host the e-book content for EBSCO.
