EZProxy - your ticket to resources from off campus: secure.colostate.edu - off-campus access without ezproxy

secure.colostate.edu for off-campus access

If for some reason you can't get a resource to accept your eID and ePassword from off-campus, you can create a tunnel to a campus IP using http://secure.colostate.edu that will treat you as if you are on campus, thus bypassing the need for logging in to use a library resource.

A. To use the secure VPN in one window for a single session

1.  Login to https://secure.colostate.edu.


2.  Once you have logged in with eID and password to the CSU eID Realm, you will be seen as having a campus IP IN THAT BROWSER TAB ONLY!  So as long as you access the library website - http://lib,colostate.edu - from that tab, library resources will treat you like you are on campus.


B. To get a full tunnel to a campus IP so that any network traffic from any browser will go through a campus IP, you have to press “Start” next to “Pulse Secure”.

Pulse Secure click start


Once that is done, you will have a full tunnel from any browser tab.  So then any resource you use that involves authentication by IP will think you are on campus.

After you have used the Pulse Secure once, you can pin it anywhere you would like (i.e. desktop, toolbar, start menu) for easy access in future sessions without going to secure.colostate.edu.
