Configure proxy settings on the inSync client

Overview

If your inSync administrator provides you with the required permissions, you can configure proxy server details on the inSync client. For example:

  • If you relocate to a different business unit from where inSync client cannot communicate with the inSync Server directly.
  • If your organization has deployed proxy servers after the inSync clients are activated.

If your administrator does not give you the required permissions to configure proxy settings for the inSync client, then you cannot modify proxy settings.

Before you begin

Before you configure the proxy details, contact the inSync administrator for the following information about your proxy server:

  • Proxy server details. You might need the IP address and port number of the proxy server, or the PAC file, or the WPAD URL of the PAC file.
  • Authentication details for the proxy server.
  • Proxy type. inSync supports SOCKS4, SOCKS5, and  HTTP.
