[Eril-l] Annual Reviews and EzProxy trouble

Hi Trisha

Two things are known to cause this type of issue off campus:

  1.  The user has a satellite phone connection which uses a compression/caching feature - the fix is to ask the satellite ISP to switch off the compression setting but it means the connection speed will drop.
  2.  HTTPHeader Accept-Encoding is declared globally somewhere on the config which breaks the display on some databases, for example Bureau van Dijk's FAME. If this directive is required on any stanza it should go below the Title directive now, not above it, see https://www.oclc.org/support/services/ezproxy/documentation/cfg/httpheader.en.html and https://www.oclc.org/support/services/ezproxy/documentation/db/musicfaculties.en.html.

It's most likely to be the second issue.

Kind regards,

Has anyone else experienced trouble with accessing Annual Reviews through the EzProxy?

On campus works fine for us and I can't seem to figure out why folks going through the EzProxy get this result:

Has anyone else experienced this?
