Configure web proxy settings in the Orion Platform
This topic applies to all Orion Platform products.
If your SolarWinds Orion server does not have Internet access, you can use a proxy server to allow the Orion server to connect to certain pages and websites. Use a proxy server to:
- Access the THWACK community
- Access the product blog
- Check for maintenance updates
- Access an alerting instance you integrated with your SolarWinds Orion server. See Alert Integrations in the Orion Platform.
To configure web proxy settings:
In the Orion Web Console, click Settings > All Settings > Product specific settings > Proxy Settings.
Select Use the following settings, and specify the IP address and port number of the proxy server.
If the proxy server requires authentication, select the check box, and specify the user name and password.
Enter a URL and click Test connection to verify that you can reach the destination address through the proxy.
