Hi Holger,

I have created in cfg/cfg.d a file called proxy.pl <http://proxy.pl>  with the line:

$c->{proxy} = 'http://proxy.yourproxy.org:yourport';

and everything works fine.

Hi @ all,


my new eprints server is behind a firewall in a DMZ. If i will import Items from Pubmed ID i get an error message. 


-- error : unreachable network --


I think eprints dont know how to communicate outside and i have to set a proxy.


So how can i tell eprints to use a proxy server?


OS: Cent OS 6.7

Eprints Version 3.3.15


King regards,
