Vendor IP Address Verification URLs

The following URLs are provided by vendors to verify the IP address they "see" from a remote system. These can be useful when trying to verify IP authentication issues with a specific vendor:

Vendor URL
EBSCO http://search.ebscohost.com/testauth.aspx
Gale http://infotrac.galegroup.com/itweb/iptest
ProQuest http://www.umi.com/whoami

These URLs can be used as starting point URLs to verify the IP address that the remote database vendor is "seeing" for your EZproxy server by using them to form starting point URLs such as:

http://ezproxy.yourlib.org/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/testauth.aspx

If you are accessing from a local machine that is part of an ExcludeIP range, you can use Option RequireAuthenticate to have your access proxied to allow you to perform this test from on-site.
