Populating Proxy Information During Log On

You can configure the proxy name and port number to automatically populate the Proxy settings between client and CommServe dialog box that appears when you click Configure from the Connect to CommCell dialog box. If you do not automatically populate the proxy information, users must enter the proxy information each time they log on to the CommCell Console.


Using oem.properties

  1. Log on to the proxy computer and go to the software_installation_directory/GUI folder.

  2. Edit the oem.properties file and add the following two lines at the end of the file:

    consoleProxyHostName=hostname or IP address of the proxy computer consoleProxyPort=port number used by the proxy to communicate with the CommServe

  3. Save the file.

    Right-click the shortcut and make a copy of the shortcut before making changes.

  2. Right-click on the shortcut, and then select Properties.

  3. In the Target field, add the -proxyHostName="hostname_or_IP" and -proxyPort=port_number parameters.
