Access to journal articles from external hosts

Access to electronic journal ressources is only possible for hosts with a DESY IP address.
However, if you do have a valid DESY account, the host bastion.desy.de may be used as a SOCKS Proxy to get access

To do so use a ssh client and log into bastion using:
ssh -D 60000 bastion.desy.de
The option -D enables port forwarding.

Now configure your browser to use this address as a SOCKS Host.
In Firefox set
Options / Advanced / Network -Tab / Connection Settings / Manual proxy connection -> Socks Host "localhost"
Port: 60000
This forwards every request via ssh to bastion.desy.de and from there to the remote host. For the remote host the request originates from within the DESY network and access is granted.
