Configuring proxy settings

Why configure proxy settings

If your administrator configured a proxy server for client-server communication, you must provide configure inSync client to recognize the proxy server. You can configure inSync client for the proxy details using one of the following methods:

  • You can leverage the system proxy settings used by the browser on your device.
  • You can manually enter the IP address and port of the proxy server.
  • You can upload a PAC file or provide its WPAD URL.

inSync client supports both authenticated and unauthenticated access to a proxy server:

  • If your proxy server requires a unique username and password for authentication, you can provide authentication details while configuring inSync client.
  • If your organization uses your Active Directory credentials for authentication at the proxy server, inSync client automatically facilitates it.

Before configuring the proxy details, contact the inSync administrator for the following information about your proxy server settings:

  • The proxy server details. If you are not using the system proxy settings, you will either need the IP address and port of the proxy server, or the PAC file, or the WPAD URL of the PAC file.
  • Authentication details for the proxy server.
  • Proxy type used in your organization. inSync supports SOCKS4, SOCKS5, and  HTTP.
Note: You can configure the proxy settings for inSync client only if your inSync administrator has assigned appropriate rights to you.
