[Web4lib] McAfee Webwasher question

Our parent IT group has made a switch from Websense to McAfee Webwasher.
Webwasher acts as a proxy server so all outbound traffic has the same IP
address. This is for about 20,000 from all the various agencies.


As you can imagine, this is having an impact on accessing many online
subscriptions and has the potential to allow unauthorized users access
to these online services.


I would be curious to learn how other libraries deal with what amounts
to a proxy server on the enterprise level.
