Proxy Access

Proxies allow remote users to access protected online content. If your institution has a proxy server, proxied links to your ILCM content are available on your ILCM Instructor Page.

The proxy needs to be configured by your institution in order for your proxy to allow a connection to the ILCM. When the proxy configuration file is updated, you will need to stop and restart the proxy service for the change to take effect. 


EZ Proxy Configuration

The Credo subdomain for the ILCM materials is http://vle.credoreference.com. If your proxy is already configured for Credo or Literati, you can simply add HJ vle.credoreference.com to the existing stanza.

That said, we usually recommend replacing the previous Credo configuration with a wildcard configuration, if possible. This will ensure that all subdomains of our site are supported, and will save you from needing to update in the future. Please note that if you add a new Credo configuration, you will need to remove any previous Credo configurations for the new one to take effect.

Here are platform-specific examples of EZ Proxy configurations with wildcards (please use only one in your file):

1. For Credo Online Reference Service users:

Title Credo Reference
URL http://search.credoreference.com 
DJ *.credoreference.com

2. For Literati users:

Title Literati
URL http://literati.credoreference.com 
DJ *.credoreference.com

3. For ILCM users without Credo Online Reference Service or Literati:

Title Credo ILCM
URL http://vle.credoreference.com 
DJ *.credoreference.com

If your proxy requires explicit subdomains instead of a wild card, please use one of the following configurations:

1. For Credo Online Reference Service users:

Title Credo Reference
URL http://search.credoreference.com 
DJ search.credoreference.com
HJ www.credoreference.com 
HJ login.credoreference.com 
HJ literati.credoreference.com 
HJ vle.credoreference.com

2. For Literati users:

Title Literati 
URL http://literati.credoreference.com 
DJ literati.credoreference.com 
HJ www.credoreference.com 
HJ login.credoreference.com 
HJ search.credoreference.com 
HJ vle.credoreference.com
HJ public.credoreference.com
HJ school.credoreference.com
HJ athlete.credoreference.com

3. For ILCM users without Credo Online Reference Service or Literati:

Title Credo ILCM
URL http://vle.credoreference.com 
DJ vle.credoreference.com
HJ www.credoreference.com
HJ search.credoreference.com
HJ literati.credoreference.com


 WAM Proxy Configuration

You will need to update your WAM redirect table with whatever Credo URLs you will run into. We recommend you add *.credoreference.com as a wildcard, to cover any possible subdomain of Credo/Literati. If you require explicit subdomains, please use the following:

www.credoreference.com
login.credoreference.com
search.credoreference.com
literati.credoreference.com
vle.credoreference.com
public.credoreference.com
school.credoreference.com
athlete.credoreference.com
