This page allows the user to configure the settings of the Web Proxy that the appliance would use when communicating with the cloud. The Web Proxy server is used to add another layer of security, filter content, allow caching to ease bandwidth requirements or even help with analytics.

Access Configure Security Settings → Web Proxy settings to open this page.

Perform the following steps to configure the Web Proxy:

  • Specify the IP address that you would like your appliance to use when communicating with the cloud.
  • Set the TCP Port number. By default, the value of 8080 is specified.
  • Choose the 'Authentication Type' from a drop-down list as 'None', 'Basic' or 'NTLM'.
  • Selecting 'Basic' will expand the view as shown below. The user should now supply a 'Username' and a 'Password'.

  • Choosing 'NTLM' will expand the view as shown below. NT LAN Manager or NTLM is an authentication protocol that uses a three - way messaging system (sometimes four if additional integrity is required) to authenticate a user.
  • Specify a 'Username', 'Password' and a 'Domain'. The first two are required fields whereas the last one is optional.

  • The last step is to Verify the settings. If the verification succeeds, the user can then proceed to Save the settings.

 

If the Web Proxy Settings have been configured incorrectly, the user will be presented with a banner message as shown below:

Clicking on the shown link will provide the details of the error. Here are some of the sample messages returned from the server that the user can encounter -

  • Can't connect to the server
  • Timeout was reached
  • Failure when receiving data from the peer
  • Required authentication

Since the error messages are returned from the proxy server, these may vary.  As such, the above list of error messages is not exhaustive.
