Patch for SCCM

Proxy Tab

The Proxy tab allows you to modify the proxy settings used by Patch for SCCM when accessing the Internet using your Web browser. In general, Patch for SCCM checks the proxy settings in Internet Explorer and conducts an Internet connectivity test to determine whether or not proxy server settings are necessary. If Patch for SCCM is unable to access the Internet using these settings, or if you are required to enter a user name and password each time you launch your browser and browse the Internet, you will need to configure the proxy options.

The settings on this tab are user settings, meaning they are uniquely configured for each user. For more information, see Shared Settings Tab.
