Secure Mobile Access 12.4 Connect Tunnel User Guide

Configuring Proxy Server Settings (Linux Only)

For Linux users, some network resources may require traffic to pass through an Internet proxy server, which provides access from your local network to the Internet. Your administrator determines whether a proxy server is required, but you may occasionally be required to specify settings for it.

In many cases, Connect Tunnel can automatically detect your Internet proxy server settings. However, if the settings cannot be automatically detected, you must manually specify them.

This section describes how to specify outbound proxy server settings. This option is available only when Connect Tunnel is offline (that is, when not connected to your VPN), and only in the Linux version of the program.

To configure outbound proxy server settings (Linux)

  1. In the Connect Tunnel login dialog, click Advanced.
  2. Click the Proxy tab.
  3. Click one of the following options:

    1. Direct Connection to the Internet: Enables a direct connection to the Internet, with no outbound proxy server redirection.
    2. Automatically detect proxy settings: Configures the client to detect and use the outbound proxy server settings as defined on your remote network.
    3. Manual proxy configuration: Enables you to manually specify proxy server settings. In the SSL field, type the host name or IP address of the Internet proxy server. In the Port field, type the number of the port on which the server is listening. Select the Use the same proxy server for all protocols to use the specified SSL server for all traffic, or specify different proxy servers and their port numbers for HTTP, FTP, or SOCKS traffic. Optionally, in the No proxy for field, you can specify host names or IP addresses that you do not want redirected through a proxy server.
    4. Automatic proxy configuration URL: Configures the client to retrieve a proxy auto-configuration (.pac) file that specifies proxy-server settings. In the field, type the URL of the server that hosts the .pac file.
  4. Click OK.

    The login dialog appears.
