HTTP Proxy Post-Installation Notes

If your location uses an HTTP proxy to access the Internet, please note the following requirements:

You must enable the Bypass proxy server for local addresses check box in the browser's proxy server settings. To access these settings, on the Tools menu in Internet Explorer, click Internet Options, click the Connections tab, and then click LAN Settings. Enabling the Bypass proxy server for local addresses check box specifies that the proxy server should not be used when the Security Controls console connects to a computer on the local network.

The consoles services will not read or reference any per-user proxy address information. To configure proxy addresses for console services, you must manually modify the STServiceHost.exe.config file to include a default proxy XML tag that defines the proxy, bypass local and bypasslist. You do this by adding the following XML beneath the base <configuration> element.

<system.net>

 <defaultProxy>

  <bypasslist>

   <add address="127.0.0.1" />

   <add address="::1" />

   <add address="RollupConsoleNameOrIPAddress" />

  </bypasslist>

  <proxy bypassonlocal="True" proxyaddress="http://ProxyNameOrIP:Port" />

 </defaultProxy>

</system.net>
