When we first started using netLibrary, we had these problems, too, when we proxied the link. Then we discovered that we did not need to proxy the link. netLibrary authenticates based on IP address and user registration. Once a patron creates a netLibrary account from an on-campus computer, netLibrary knows with whom the patron is associated. The patron can then access and use netLibrary from anywhere on any computer. Our Reference Desk often helps Distance Education students by creating the account for the student after verifying the student is in our database. The student can then reset their password at their convenience.

Thanks to everyone who replied on this. I tried several things,
including adding a WAM entry for "download.netlibrary.com" specifically.
Now it's in III's hands. If they find a solution that looks general,
rather than something specific to our library, I will post it here.
