When you use Cisco AnyConnect to vpn to your desk on campus, it bypasses Ezproxy, so database vendors can't see that you are an authorized user.
Suggestion: Disconnect from Cisco AnyConnect when you need to use Library Databases.
Alternative: After logging into a database from campus, or with Cisco AnyConnect off
create a personal login to the database so you can log in regardless of where you log in from.
Click any link with the lock icon to log in or sign in:
9-digit student ID firstname.lastname@example.org (Ex: email@example.com) Must have @fvtc.edu
Password is your MyFVTC Password
The Proxy Prefix is
It must come before the Vendor's URL (CultureGrams, EBSCO, Films on Demand, Ovid, etc.)
The Proxy login authenticates you as an affiliate of FVTC, and allows the Vendor's Database to recognize you as an affiliate of FVTC.

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.

What do I do if logging into the Films On Demand database doesn't work?
1) Use Chrome browser (or Firefox)
2) Clear cache of your browser to eliminate error pages:
> Go to browser menu
> History> Open History
> Select all possible boxes
> Delete everything for all time (Good practice in general to do at least once a week)
3) Reboot your computer
If that doesn’t work, then
