Customers attempting to access SAE MOBILUS utilizing an EZProxy server have reported the following error message: “Connection refused by https://saemobilus.sae.org/Please try again later”.
Please follow the steps below to diagnosis and correct the situation.
1. Check Firewall settings to ensure that SAE MOBILUS is not blocked.
2. Try to access https://saemobilus.sae.org/ without the EZProxy link on the EZProxy server.
3. Check if SSL Certificate is installed for the EZProxy server. Please refer to this link for details: https://www.oclc.org/support/services/ezproxy/documentation/cfg/ssl.en.html#par_text_title
4. Run https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/viewMyClient.html on the EZProxy Server to see if client supports TLS 1.2
If you still experience problems, then there is a TLS mismatch. To access SAE MOBILUS, your EZProxy server should support TLS 1.2. Currently, EZProxy version 6.1.16 with OpenSSL 1.0.2d is the only version of EZProxy that supports TLS 1.2.
Shibboleth is a standards based, open source software package enabling web-based single sign-on authentication across or within organizational boundaries. The Shibboleth® technology delivers single sign-on and federated administration of protected resources. Information is exchanged between an SAE International customer (Identity Provider) and the SAE MOBILUS platform (Service Provider), allowing seamless access to SAE content without providing additional login credentials.
Key benefits to customers and end-users are three-fold:
• Administrative Convenience – it will reduce the number of login credentials a user has to remember to access external resources that their library has provided to them, reducing the burden of username/password administration.
• Easier Resource Administration – users will not have to manage access to the SAE Digital Library differently from other library resources. One username/password works for all without the library managing anything.
• User Convenience –university’s current access to the SAE Digital Library via IP authentication and/or username and password remains unchanged. Shibboleth access is one more convenient way for users to get to SAE International’s content.
