Connect through proxy

Overview

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. 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.
