  • OK, I figure out what I had to do to get this running on the SKC Cloud platform. Essentially I had to recreate the VM from scratch. Not a big deal because I gzip’d the ezproxy directory form the test VM I setup and just moved it over to the SKC GCloud VM. The one key thing is that you have to have the 32-bit libraries for Linux install since the VM is a 64-bit Linux machine and ezproxy is a 32-bit application. The commands are:

    sudo dpkg –add-architecture i386
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install libc6:i386

    This SKC GCloud machine is at I will let Fred he needs to request this address as well for the databases. I also figured out you have to request a static address. That other address will change. I am not sure on reboots or when. But this 130 address is static and should not change.
