State University Libraries
& VPN CONNECTION
you want to access most password-protected library materials
(databases, e-books and e-journals),
your Tarleton network username and password and
either the EZProxy or the VPN connection.
Various traits of your computer system will determine whether you
use EZProxy or the VPN connection, which are explained below.
browsers work well with the EZProxy, which should be your first choice
in trying to establish a connection for remote access. It is already
in place and requires no special browser configuration. EZProxy is
activated when you click on a link to a subscription database, e-book,
or e-journal. When EZProxy is activated, the following screen will
appear prompting you to enter your Tarleton network username and password:
If your Tarleton network username and password are current, the EZProxy
should let Tarleton's server recognize you as a qualified user (i.e.
a current Tarleton faculty, staff, or student) and give you access
to Tarleton network password-protected resources.
EZProxy does not work with your computer, you may need to try the
VPN connection. Once VPN is installed, you should be able to access
the libraries' databases, e-books, and e-journals if your Tarleton
network username and password are current. You will also be able to
access your H:drive (a portion of a Tarleton server designated for
remote storage) using the VPN connection.
