Setting up Proxy Connections Using Advanced Firewall Settings

You can configure clients or client groups to connect to the CommServe computer and MediaAgent through a proxy.

If you do not want to use network topologies to configure your proxy connection routes, you can use the Advanced firewall setting.

The advanced configuration includes additional configuration steps, and is recommended for more experienced firewall users. For example, you can configure incoming connection restrictions and ports.
