Accessing the Polar Speedstack online material libraries via a proxy server

Speedstack versions 17.05 and later provide access to the Polar Online Material Library.

This facility allows designers and fabricators to download the latest material libraries so preferred materials may be dynamically included in Speedstack's Stackup Editor as stacks are being created or modified.

When the Online Library function is called:

Speedstack connects to the Polar online library and allows the user to browse the library materials.

Managing access via proxy servers

Many organisations connect to the Internet via proxy servers to provide caching and controlled access. In some cases, a proxy server may return library content in a format that prevents successful download into Speedstack.

Speedstack will then return an error message as in the example below: "The remote server returned an error. (404) Not Found"

If your organisation connects to the internet via a proxy server, you may need to ask your MIS department to grant address permission to bypass the proxy server.

Using on-premise material libraries

In the event you are unable to access the online material library Polar can supply you with library files for your version of Speedstack for download and offline (on-premise) use.

Setting up and using the on-premise library function is described in Application Note AP547 Accessing the Polar Speedstack on-premise material libraries
