Proxy Settings

General Information

The proxy settings dialog allows you to configure ORF to connect to remote servers directly or through a proxy server.

Local vs. Server Proxy Settings
Most proxy settings in ORF apply to all tools installed on your local computer (Administration Tool, Log Viewer and Reporting Tool). However, if the managed server utilizes the Configuration Subscription feature and pulls its configuration from a remote publisher, the proxy settings used for the synchronization may differ and should be set separately on the Configuration Subscription page.

In other words, the latter parameters will be used by the currently managed server (whether local or remote) to access the configuration on the publisher server, while the general proxy parameters will be used by all tools on the local computer when connecting to a remote server.

Connection Type

Direct connection (no HTTP proxy)

By default, ORF tries to connect to remote installations directly using an HTTP-based protocol (modified version of SOAP). Choose this option if you are connecting directly with no proxy involved.

Connect using HTTP Proxy

If you are connecting to the remote server through a proxy, you should enter the proxy parameters under HTTP Proxy Details (see below).

HTTP Proxy Details

Enter the proxy server IP or name and the connection port (example: proxy.example.org:8080). If the proxy requires authentication, enter the user name and password as well, if the proxy does not require authentication, leave the latter two fields blank.

Proxy Bypass

Set the Bypass HTTP proxy for local network addresses (intranet) checkbox if connecting to intranet hosts does not require proxy access.

You can also add other, non-local hosts which should be accessed directly (even with the Connect using HTTP proxy option selected) by adding them to the Bypass proxy for the following hosts field separated by semicolons.

Import from Network Settings Button

Appears only if Configuration subscription is enabled. Clicking it will import the proxy configuration of your management tools (see Local vs. Server Proxy Settings at the top) so the managed ORF instance will use the same proxy settings to access the publisher as your management tools.
