Configuring an HTTP Proxy


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.

Note: Starting Feature Release 11.26, when an HTTP proxy is set for Azure access nodes, the Azure storage account URLs are automatically bypassed. If your proxy is in a restrictive environment, verify that the proxy has access to the Azure storage account used in the environment.


  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.
