National Technical Information Service (NTIS)

2007-05-09

In order to provide access to resources that use https, your EZproxy server must be configured with an SSL certificate.

The National Technical Information Service (NTIS) does not provide IP authentication or a simple method for username/password authentication. The following database stanza can be used to direct EZproxy to fill in your institution's username and password when it is requested by the NTIS server.

Title National Technical Information Service (updated 20070509)
URL http://www.ntis.gov/FDLP/login.aspx?ReturnUrl=/fdlp/Default.aspx
DJ ntis.gov
Find <input name="ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$Login1$UserName"
Replace <input name="ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$Login1$UserName" value=" yourusername"
Find <input name="ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$Login1$Password"
Replace <input name="ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$Login1$Password" value=" yourpassword"

substituting your own username and password at the appropriate points.

Since both local and remote users would need to have this information provided, see AutoLoginIP for an example of how to use this directive to proxy your local users transparently when accessing this service.

If you are accessing this link through a US GPO PURL, you will also need to define the PURL service to EZproxy like this:
