After logging into the proxy server via CalNet, why do I sometimes see a window with a "Connect to Resource" button?

Usually after you have logged in, your browser is redirected straight to the resource you initially requested. However, under two different circumstances, the proxy server instead displays a window containing a "Connect to Resource" button:

  • A few resources, such as the Biblioline databases, spawn a new browser window when they are invoked. This can cause problems, which we avoid by instead displaying the window with the "Connect to Resource" button.

  • When authentication takes place while you're in the midst of a search operation, you may be returned to a "Connect to Resource" form if the resource sends its search parameters using the "POST" method of data transmission.

In either case, clicking on the "Connect to Resource" button will usually get you where you're going.
