Error: forgot @fvtc.edu

If you try to log in, but forget to put @fvtc.edu after your ID - or your password is not synchronized with the master list, you get error. Try again. If that does not work go to MyFVTC and Reset Your MyFVTC Password.

ERROR: You get wrong login screen

Issue: the “proxy prefix” https://login.applibproxy.fvtc.edu/login?url= for off-campus use is missing.

For off-campus use, URL must have proxy prefix
https://login.applibproxy.fvtc.edu/login?url=https://fod.infobase...

Your link must have the proxy prefix to prompt the FVTC sign-in authorization box. 

Without this prefix, Films on Demand (FOD) server is not seeing you as an FVTC associate, and can only provide their generic public login box.  That can only be used if you have created a personal account from our subscription access.

Can I post links within Microsoft PowerPoint and Word?

For PowerPoint : You need to first log into Films on Demand on your default browser (the one that opens up automatically when you click links)  so the authentication cookie is loaded. 

Then when you click the FOD link in PowerPoint, it will open as if you put the link directly into your browser.
