We have received reports from some users not being able to download IEEE articles or conference proceedings while on campus. IEEE began authenticating IPv6 IP addresses earlier this month (June 6), resulting in problems accessing licensed IEEE Xplore online content because. According to their customer support this is because IPv6 authentication trumps all other authentication mechanisms.” This is not affected the entire campus network, just those computers with IPv6 addresses (vs the shorter IPv4 addresses you may be more familiar with).
To help CDL (California Digital Library) troubleshoot this issue:
For a short-term workaround, install and use the AnyConnect VPN client when trying to get IEEE content (http://libraries.ucsd.edu/spaces/computing/remote-access/ – follow the instructions for your operating system). The VPN IP addresses were not affected by IEEE’s changes.
