UW IT recently announced the Husky OnNet service to provide a secure temporary connection to the UW network from remote locations.
UW Libraries provides off-campus access to our licensed resources via an Off-Campus Proxy service.
Husky OnNet can be used as an alternative to the Off-Campus Proxy for remote access to licensed library resources. To do so, you will need to make one small change to the settings in the OnNet f5 BIG-IP client.
After following the instructions to Download and Use Husky OnNet, start the OnNet application. Before clicking on ‘Connect’, check which server you are using
Next to the big ‘W’ it will either say ‘UW Campus Network Traffic Only’ or ‘All Internet Traffic’. If it says ‘UW Campus Network Traffic Only’, click on the ‘Change Server’ button in the bottom left corner of the window.
Click the big ‘Connect’ button
From this point, you can browse, search, and connect to any UW Libraries licensed resource as if you are on campus and without using the Off-Campus Proxy.
If you are connected with ‘UW Campus Network Traffic Only’, all connections to UW Libraries licensed resources will be treated as off-campus and will require the Off-Campus Proxy.
Be sure to ‘Disconnect’ from OnNet when you are done and no longer need the connection to the UW network.
