NML Authentication and Site Speed Updates

Hello Friends,

Hope you're off to a fantastic fall season!   

We wanted to take this opportunity to remind everyone that proxy strings and settings can make a big difference in regards to NML site speed.  Below is an updated EZProxy configuration line for Naxos Music Library and updated Firewall port information.  Also included below is an updated EZProxy configuration for the new Naxos Sheet Music Library.

Our IT team has also completed the first portion of a site update for speed and optimization.  You should notice NML now running quite a bit quicker, especially during times of peak usage!  

If you need assistance with updated entries to the other Naxos services (NML-Jazz, NSWL, or NVL) please call or write anytime  -  or 615.771.9393 X3833

Step 1 - Update Adobe Flash
This can be done quickly and easily by following this link.  The latest version of Flash can always be found at that link, so feel free to save it for later.

Step 2 - Update Your EZProxy/Naxos Entry

Some subscribers have attempted to proxy the media, resulting in incredibly long load and stream times.  Be sure you're using the string below.

* Replace XXXXX with your sub-domain.  If you need assistance, contact us anytime!

 Title Naxos Music Library
## Naxos Music Library Images CDN Location
## Naxos Music Library Audio CDN Location

Proxy Update for the new Naxos Sheet Music Library:

Step 3 - Disable GZip Compression

* Be sure GZip compression is disabled.

Some users may have encountered the bug as seen below.  Updating to the latest version of Adobe Flash and making sure GZip Compression is disabled will eliminate this bug and allow normal use. 

This is the error you may encounter if GZip compression isn't disabled.

Step 4 - Check Firewall Ports

* Be sure that ports 80, 443, and 1935 are open.

That's about it for the quick basics of authentication updates.  If you have any questions, or have updated everything above and still have access troubles, don't hesitate to call or write anytime.

Happy Listening!

  1. We’re still waiting for a Blackberry’s app…

  2. Because of the rapidly changing and expanding market for devices that require custom apps, we are currently focusing on creating a way for NML to be available on any device with an internet connection. While we do not yet have a timeline set in stone for this feature, it is very much in development, and more will be announced when it is ready.
