The Library proxy system provides access to subscription database materials for off-campus users (and to the Winnipeg Free Press 8-day archive for on- and off-campus users). Previously the proxy system was available via Innopac (the Library catalogue server via http://innopac.uwinnipeg.ca:2048/login). During the summer, we set up a dedicated server called Libproxy (libproxy.uwinnipeg.ca) to handle all database proxy requests. We've also configured the proxy system to be more firewall-friendly to off-campus users who may have firewall restrictions on their home or workplace network (so no more 2000-series ports will be required for connecting to the proxy).
Proxy links starting with innopac.uwinnipeg.ca are no longer valid. If you should have any bookmarked pages with innopac.uwinnipeg.ca, please delete them immediately and use the links provided at http://cybrary.uwinnipeg.ca/find/db/alphaDisplay.cfm. If you should be directed to innopac.uwinnipeg.ca rather than libproxy.uwinnipeg.ca or if you should have any technical problems with the Library's proxy and accessing subscription database resources, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.Posted by mhohner at September 6, 2005 3:36 PM
