Configuring an HTTP Proxy for Amazon Web Services

Updated

On this page

You can configure a different HTTP proxy to communicate with your cloud account.

By default, if an HTTP proxy is configured for the CommServe computer, that HTTP proxy is used by all clients in the CommCell group.

Procedure

  1. From the navigation pane, go to Manage > Servers groups.

    The Server groups page appears.

  2. On the Configuration tab, complete the following steps:

    1. Under HTTP proxy, move the Use HTTP proxy toggle key to the right.

      The Http proxy page appears.

    2. Enter the proxy server name and proxy port.

    3. To specify authentication options, move the Use authentication toggle key to the right, and then either select an existing credential from the list, or perform the following steps to create a new credential:

      1. Click Create New.

        The Create user credential dialog box appears.

      2. Enter details for the new credential.

      3. Click Save.

    4. To use the HTTP proxy with network topologies, move the Use with network topologies toggle key to the right.

      If this option is selected, the network daemon service uses this HTTP proxy for the outgoing connections that are set up in the network topology for the server group.

    5. To enter a domain or endpoint that does not require this HTTP proxy, enter the address in the Proxy Bypass List field.

      For example:

      • You can enter a endpoint URL, such as ec2.us-east-1.amazonaws.com.

      • You can enter multiple endpoints using the "," operator as a delimiter, such as ec2.us-east-1.amzonaws.com,s3.us-east-1.amazonaws.com.

    6. You can also use wildcards "*" and "?" such as *.us-east-1.amazonaws.com.

  3. Click Save.
