If you run EZproxy on a Windows system that already has a web server and you want to use EZproxy on port 80, you will need to assign an additional DNS name and IP address to the server.
Start by requesting the new DNS name and IP address from your network administrator. The IP address you request must be in the same subnet as the existing IP address on your server.
If you use proxy by hostname, be sure to request the creation of the wildcard entry to point to the same address. With proxy by hostname, you should also verify that the DNS entries with the Check DNS test.
In this note, the DNS name ezproxy.yourlib.org and the IP address 188.8.131.52 demonstrate where the DNS name and IP address should appear, and where you should insert your values instead.
These are the steps to add the second IP address to your existing network adapter.
If you are using IIS, you must perform an additional step to information IIS that it needs to share access to port 80. Consult EZproxy/IIS Co-Existence on Port 80 for the steps required to do this.
To tell EZproxy to use this name and address, edit config.txt and add lines similar to:
These lines should appear before any LoginPort, LoginPortSSL, or Title lines.
