No remote access to WRDS

Remote access to WRDS databases is down. Stay tuned for when it gets restored.

I just tried logging in here from home...didn't work. Here's what happened. After launching the database from the Information Resources page, getting past the EZ Proxy authentication page, and selecting one of the WRDS databases (such as CRSP), I get to the search screen. Once I try to submit a search (you click the "Submit Request" button at the bottom of the page), a new window opens on my computer asking me for a username and password (normally, this new window is the one that contains the data from your search query). We shouldn't be seeing this user name/password page, just the results of the search.

As of May 4, remote access is still down.
