Important note about Proxy by Port

OCLC will end support for EZproxy’s Proxy by Port option on 30 September 2020, due to its incompatibility with many popular e-resource websites. Customers currently running Proxy by Port may continue to do so for the time being. After 30 September 2020, customers will need to enable Proxy by Hostname in order to receive support from OCLC. Proxy by Hostname will help ensure seamless access for your library’s e-resource subscriptions. For more information, please see migrating to Proxy by Hostname or contact OCLC Support.
