Before Getting Started: EZproxy Annual Subscription

If you purchased an annual subscription after July 2013, and that subscription is current, you can download the newest version of EZproxy, request a WSKey, and complete the update instructions. If you purchased a license prior to July 2013, you will need to update to the new annual subscription model before downloading the newest version of EZproxy, requesting a WSKey, and updating. To do this, you can request a quote, and you will be provided with a quote and information about how to subscribe. If you are uncertain if your subscription is current, please email orders@oclc.org.

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 V5.7.44, you still have SSL 3 enabled, and you will receive this error message when trying to connect to site using EZproxy. Upgrading EZproxy to V5.7.44 or V6.0 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.
