EBSCO IPs and Domains for Firewalls, Proxy Servers, and Whitelists


Many of our customers need to allow access through firewalls, proxy servers, caching servers, filtering software and other security features. Below is a list of addresses that your network will need to have full access to (incoming and outgoing traffic), in order to use EBSCOhost and our affiliated products to their fullest extent.

To prevent any issues with access, please do not filter or cache the following domains or IPs and, if possible, we recommend you use the preferred IP range listed below.
