Configure web proxy settings in the SolarWinds Platform
This topic applies to all SolarWinds Platform products.
If your SolarWinds Platform server does not have Internet access, you can use a proxy server to allow the SolarWinds Platform 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 Platform server. See Alert Integrations in the SolarWinds Platform.
To configure web proxy settings:
In the SolarWinds Platform 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.
