EZproxy v7.0.16 was released on, 9 April 2020. This maintenance release builds on our recent release of EZproxy v7.0 and includes:

  • OpenSSL 1.1.1f (released 31 March 2020) for improved security
  • Fix for an issue that caused EZproxy to fail to start on Windows systems

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.
