Configuring a Web Proxy Server

Oct 08, 2015

You can configure a web proxy server from the App Controller command-line console to allow access to the Internet from App Controller. To configure the web proxy server, you configure the IP address, port, and optionally, a non-proxy host list, user name, and password. When you commit the changes, App Controller restarts. After you configure the web proxy server, when you use the management console to manage user accounts from the Apps & Docs tab for SaaS apps or for ShareFile, App Controller uses the proxy server settings for outbound connections.

When you configure the web proxy server, you configure the settings for an unsecure (HTTP) web proxy server. When configuration of these settings is complete, you then configure the settings for a secure (HTTPS) web proxy server.

Note: The web proxy does not work with Google Apps or the Salesforce application if you configure the web proxy with authentication.

To configure a web proxy server

  1. In XenCenter or vSphere, select the App Controller virtual machine, click the Console tab and then log on to App Controller.
  2. In the main menu, type 3 to open the System menu and then press ENTER.
  3. In the system menu, type 7 to select Web Proxy Server and then press ENTER.
  4. Enter the following web proxy information:
    • IP address
    • Port
    • Proxy host exclusion list (optional)
    • User name
      Note: When you configure the web proxy, you can use either SAMAccount or the User Principal Name (UPN) as the format for the user name. App Controller supports special characters in the user name.
