Configuring the proxy server connection settings

23 May 2024

ID 91224

The specified proxy server settings are used for database updates, activating the application, and for the operation of KSN/KPSN and Moebius services.

To configure the proxy server connection settings:

  1. In the application web interface window, select the SettingsExternal servicesProxy server connection section.
  2. Enable or disable the use of proxy server with the Use proxy server toggle switch.
  3. If at the previous step, you have enabled the use of a proxy server, enter the address and port of the proxy server in the Proxy server address fields.

    By default, port 8080 is used.

  4. Select the Bypass proxy server for local and private addresses check box if you do not want to use a proxy server for internal and private email addresses.
  5. In the User name (optional) and Password (optional) fields, enter the user name and password if you want to use authentication for connecting to the proxy server.

    The user name and password are transmitted to the proxy server as unencrypted plain text, which means that third parties can capture this information by analyzing network traffic. An adversary may attempt to use these credentials to gain access to other systems, therefore, to prevent additional damage from user name and password interception, we recommend never reusing these credentials in other systems.

  6. Click Save.

Proxy server connection is configured.
