External access to MPS resources for FKF-employees

March 16, 2015

FKF employees who are in a network outside of the FKF or MPG IP range (e.g. on conference or at home), need to have an authentication gateway for accessing remote fee-based content on the web licensed by the MPG.

One option was tu use the EZproxy gateway at MPG AAI. This service is no longer available and we installed now a local EZproxy service. Here, we can also add access to resources licensed locally in addition to the MPG licenses from Grundversorgung by MPDL. You need only:

  • web browser (platform independent: Win, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, ...)
  • your FKF mail account (e.g. m.planck@fkf.mpg.de) and password of the web-mail system

Please note that only the login is encrypted, all further actions are sent over in plain text for better performance. Please access the top menu of or new service at:http://ezproxy.fkf.mpg.de

You may like to bookmark direct access links to special resources or add them as shortcuts on your desktop:

Please find more bookmark links at the webpage of the library: http://www.mpi-stuttgart.mpg.de/bibliothek/shibboleth
