Manually Configuring Cloud Proxy Settings

For initial testing of the policy, before a rollout is done to every user, configuring proxy settings by hand is the least invasive option, and can be easily done on the administrator’s PC without affecting other users. How this is done, depends on the browser. Examples of some of the more common browsers and the relevant settings are listed below:


Internet Explorer users:

1. Within Internet Explorer, click on the Tools menu

2. Select Internet Options from the drop-down

3. Click on the Connections tab, then LAN Settings

4. Within the LAN Settings menu, tick the box that says Use a proxy server for your LAN, then click Advanced

5. Enter the proxy address and port number 8082 (these can be located under Proxy Configuration in your Web Console). Repeat this for all but Socks.


Firefox users:

1. Within Firefox, click on the Tools menu

2. On the drop-down, select Options

3. On the resultant popup, click Advanced on the top panel, and on the tab labeled Network, click Settings

4. Select the Manual proxy configuration option, and key in the proxy address and port number 8082 for the box labeled HTTP Proxy, as well the port in the port field.

5. Repeat the same for SSL and FTP, but be sure to leave Gopher and SOCKS empty.


Google Chrome users:

Google Chrome on Windows uses the same proxy configuration settings defined for Internet Explorer, however it is reached using a slightly different method.



This is not the case for Chrome on Mac systems, nor Chrome/Chromium on Linux systems. Configuring settings for Internet Explorer should be sufficient to force Chrome through the service as well


Apple Safari users:

1. Choose Preferences from the Safari menu and click Advanced,

2. Then click Change Settings. The Network pane of System Preferences opens showing the proxy settings for the type of connection you are using.

3. Select the checkbox for the type of proxy server (for example, Web Proxy). 

4. Enter the proxy address in the first text box and the port number 8082 in the second box. When you're ready, click Apply Now
