Access to licensed electronic ressources from non-HZB computers
You may view licensed content only if your are entiteld to (electronic journals, databases, e-books).
For this purpose the IP address of your computer is used. This method used by most content providers.
We have informed each provider about the IP address ranges used by us. If your computer has an address in these ranges the external servers check it and the access is possible then. Many providers give notice on their pages that you have access via HZB in this case.
If you use a computer that has a foreign IP address, you may access via a detour with your HZB ID.
The problem solution
Please start a web browser on a computer in the HZB intranet and control this from your computer remotely. This is possible in different ways, for example:
- connect with the MS Remote Desktop Connection program (Windows, Mac OS) or any other RDP program (e.g. /net/bin/sas-remmina for standard HZB Linux systems) to the HZB SAS farm rica.helmholtz-berlin.de with your HZB ID
- connect with Internet Explorer to https://rica.helmholtz-berlin.de with your HZB ID
- a web browser on a HZB Linux server (eg dinux6.basisit.de) with VNC via an SSH tunnel over display.helmholtz-berlin.de. All you need is a Java extension in your browser.
