The following table contains links to installation and update instructions for EZproxy on the three supported platforms. This version is a free update for EZproxy subscribers.

EZproxy 6.0 requires users to have an EZproxy subscription and then obtain a WSKey (new license key) from OCLC to run the software. The license keys from previous versions of EZproxy will not work with EZproxy V6.0. Before downloading EZproxy, please order a subscription using the instructions here, then request and obtain your WSKey using the instructions here.
Note: Firefox and Chrome have recently updated their browsers to block access to webservers that have SSL 3 enabled. If you have not upgraded to EZproxy 5.7.44, you still have SSL 3 enabled, and you will receive this error message when trying to connect to site using EZproxy. Upgrading EZproxy to 5.7.44 or 6.0 will resolve this problem as SSL 3 is disabled by default. OCLC also recommends that you disable SSL 2 using the
Option DisableSSLv2 directive. For more details about this security configuration and other settings, please see EZproxy Security FAQ.
