Proxy configuration

For each network profile, you can define a proxy server that is used by web clients or browsers. The proxy server can be configured manually or automatically.

If you define the proxy server centrally in the device configuration, it can be accessed from all application definitions (browsers). This central system proxy1 contains the proxy setting which can either be a fixed server setting, automatically determined, or simply No Proxy.

Using an automatic WPAD configuration, all web clients of an organization can then be configured easily to the same proxy server or servers.

For the system proxy setting, in the network profiles, you will find the options described below.

Option Description
No proxy No proxy server is used
Manual (Proxy:Port) Specify fixed proxy server with port number

Example: proxy.sampletec-01.com:3800

To define destinations that you do not want to access via proxy, in the Proxy exception list, enter the relevant network addresses separated by semicolons.

Auto (URL) Proxy auto-config (PAC): Determines the appropriate proxy for each URL

Examples:
http://proxy.sampletec-01.com/proxy.pac
http://wpad.sampletec-01.com/wpad.dat

Pass-through logon for proxy (with AD user authentication)2 If a central system proxy is configured with AD authentication, the AD logon data are used for authentication.

Proxy authentication may be required if you use browser content redirection under Citrix.

Proxy username3 Username for authentication on the system proxy
Proxy password4 Password for authentication on the system proxy

When you define a browser application, the default proxy setting is Use system proxy. The proxy setting defined in the relevant network profile is now active. For further information, see Defining a browser application.
