Important note: IPv4 and IPv6 and EZproxy V6.0 

Our new platform supports both IPv4 and IPv6 authentication. As such, it may be necessary to specify whether EZproxy should use IPv6 or IPv4 to listen for login requests and database source IPs. If your access is being impacted by the above connection refused message, please see OCLC's Interface support pages for guidance.


OCLC hosted EZproxy

If your EZproxy server is hosted by OCLC and you are experiencing access issues, please contact them directly via your local OCLC Support team (OCLC Customer Support) and ask them to ensure that they have listed the correct database definitions for your EZproxy server.
