Article Summary

CTERA Agent supports HTTPS proxies that support the CONNECT method. If you want CTERA Agent to connect to the portal via a proxy, you can configure the proxy before you sign into CTERA Agent.

The following proxy authentication schemes are supported:

  • Basic
  • NTLM
  • NTLMv2

Note: Using a proxy auto-config (PAC) file is not supported.

To set up a connection to the portal via a web proxy:

  1. In the Welcome to CTERA Agent window, click Advanced.
  2. Select an option from the Proxy Settings dropdown list.
    Use HTTP Proxy – CTERA Agent uses the proxy you configure to connect to the portal server:
    • Address – The address of the proxy server.
      Port – The proxy server port number.
      Proxy server requires a password – The proxy server requires authentication via a username and password.

          • Username – The username for authenticating to the proxy server.
            Password – The password.

Auto – CTERA Agent attempts to automatically determine your proxy settings according to your Windows settings. Automatic proxy detection is based on the system-wide proxy settings, which are not the same as the browser settings.

  • In 64-bit Windows versions prior to Windows 8, configure the system proxy settings using this command: %WINDIR%\SysWOW64\netsh winhttp set proxy <settings>
  • In all other Windows versions, configure the system proxy settings using the following command: netsh winhttp set proxy <settings>

3. Click Save.

Note: The proxy settings set in the Advanced window are saved as the default proxy settings. If you connect not using these proxy settings and then use the proxy settings again, these default settings are displayed.
