If having difficulty logging into Photocopier (Papercut) or Library Databases (Ezproxy): Reset Password

When you have yourself logged into Cisco Anyconnect, it confuses our EzProxy!

When you use Cisco AnyConnect to connect to your desk on campus, it bypasses Ezproxy, so the database can't see that you are an authorized user.

Suggestion: Disconnect from Cisco AnyConnect when you need to use Library Databases.

Alternative:  Create a personal login to the database so you can log in regardless of your location.

Troubleshooting Films on Demand Access

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.
