Portal of electronic information resources
Palacký University
EIZ Portal at UP


EZproxy and smart links

EZproxy technology was launched on the Portal of electronic information resources. EZproxy provides another way of remote access to licensed resources, the use of which is limited to the Palacký University computer network.
The advantage of EZproxy is its simplicity, but it is necessary to connect to resources directly here on the portal using EZproxy links, which the portal generates for individual resources.

At the same time, smart links were set up on the portal, which will make access to resources even easier.
Based on whether the user wants to access the resource directly from the university network or elsewhere, the portal itself offers a suitable link, i.e. direct access address, Shibboleth or EZproxy link.
All you have to do is "Connect to the resource" on its page here on the portal or click on the source name, e.g. in the alphabetical list.

Users who want to choose the method of remote access themselves can use the appropriate links on the page of the selected source, see the instructions for EZproxy and Shibboleth.
In addition, it is possible to use a VPN connection in which your computer becomes part of the UPOL network.
