Configuring Proxy and Authenticated Proxy per Web Application
Solution

Connectra supports configuration of Proxy per Web Application. The Administrator can configure Web Applications that are located behind a proxy server. Thus, Connectra allows additional enforcement for user access to Web resources. In addition, an Authenticated Proxy can be configured per Web Application.

Notes:

  • Configuration may only be performed via the GuiDBedit tool.
  • Authenticated Proxy can only be configured per Web Application, not globally.


Proceed as follows:

  1. Close any opened SmartDashboard application.
  2. Open the GuiDBedit application.
  3. From the "Other" table, select the network_applications tab.
  4. Select the specific connectra_web_application object.
  5. Scroll through the object fields and find the proxy_server field.
  6. Update the proxy_server as desired, setting the relevant parameters, as described in the table below.
  7. Save all changes and close the GuiDBedit application.
  8. Open the SmartDashboard application and install policy on the relevant Connectra gateways.

The following table describes the parameters to be set, when configuring an Authenticated http Proxy per Web Application.
