Connect through proxy

If your company uses a proxy server you may need to configure access through proxy on the Host and/or Viewer side, depending on which side the proxy is.

Important!

The proxy settings on the Host side are global.

The proxy settings on the Viewer side are connection-specific, i.e. they are specified individually for each connection in the address book.

Configuring proxy on the Host side

  1. Right-click the Host icon in the system tray and select Settings for Host: Host menu
  2. Click on the Settings for host button and select Options from the menu: Settings for Host - Options menu item
  3. Navigate to the Network tab and click the Proxy settings button: Proxy settings on the Network tab
  4. In the Proxy Settings window select Use proxy server and specify your proxy settings. Click OK: Proxy settings window
  5. Close the Host settings.

Configuring proxy on the Viewer side

  1. Right-click the target connection in the address book and select Properties. Connection menu - Properties
  2. Go to the Network tab and click the Proxy settings button. Connection properties - proxy settings on the Network tab
  3. In the Proxy Settings window select Use proxy server and specify your proxy settings: Proxy settings window
  4. Click OK and close connection properties.

Important!

If you need to specify proxy settings for all newly created connections, use Default connection properties. If you need to change proxy settings for multiple existing connections learn how to edit properties for multiple connections.
