Why are some resource sites displaying only encoded characters when using EZproxy?

  • When I load some of the database sites I am only seeing encoded characters
Applies to
  • EZproxy 
  1. Search the config.txt file for HTTPHeader Accept-Encoding or HTTPHeader *.
  2. Replace with "HTTPHeader -request -process Accept-Encoding" - OR - "HTTPHeader -request -process *" and move between the Title and URL line for the stanza.
Additional information

Note: HTTPHeader Accept-Encoding is a global directive that will affect other stanzas.  This change localizes the HTTPHeader directive to an individual stanza preventing conflicts with other stanzas and content.
