The address you are trying to access is invalid.
Complete address of the page:
http://philpapers.org/rec/CHUEMA

What did you see that was wrong? If there was an error message with an explanation, what was it?

My browser is Firefox 3 (Linux)


The problem I have is with clicking on the JSTOR link after setting up the proxy browser. The link is:

http://www.jstor.org.pugwash.lib.warwick.ac.uk/sici?sici=0022-362X(198102)78:2%3C67:EMATPA%3E2.0.CO;2-8

and I get the message
"The address you are trying to access is invalid."

Hi, did you set up your proxy server manually or you gave PP a jstor link from your library? If the latter, can you give me this link?

Dear David, yes I did use the automatic proxy finder
The link I entered was this (I think)

http://0-www.jstor.org.pugwash.lib.warwick.ac.uk/action/showPublication?journalCode=jphilosophy

Jon.

Hi Jon, I'm not sure what's wrong. That URL seems to be meant to provide access to www.jstor.org through the reverse proxy pugwash.lib.warwick.ac.uk. On the other hand, judging from this page here, reverse proxy is not the method the university wants you to use:

http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/library/main/electronicresources/journals

(All the links are pointing to Sibboleth and Athens login pages, which are different systems.) I wonder how you obtained the pugwash link. I can investigate more if you tell me how you got that link. It would also help to know whether you can access other sites with your current set up on PhilPapers. Try for example the main link on this page with proxy browsing on:

http://philpapers.org/rec/GOLRIP-2

I can't tell you more from what I know at this point. Could be that JSTOR is not supported through reverse proxy at Warwick because it's supported through Sibboleth. Could be PP didn't get the proxy's name right. Could be that the reverse proxy service at Warwick is broken.
