Configuring the Client

You configure your client transfer application by specifying your proxy host, port number, username, and password. In the Enterprise Server GUI, go to Preferences > Proxy. Note that the transfer proxy feature is disabled by default. On this screen, you can do the following:

  • Configure connections on a case-by-case basis using this screen.
  • Configure proxy settings for all transfers by clicking Global Preferences. This requires root privileges.


Case-by-Case Settings

  1. Check the Enable transfer proxy checkbox if you want to turn on transfer proxy and override global settings for connecting to your proxy server.
  2. Enter the proxy server’s hostname or IP address, and enter the port number.
  3. Enable the Secure checkbox if your proxy server allows secure connections.
  4. Enter the proxy server’s Node API username and password. This is the Node API user you created when you were configuring the proxy server. (See Configuring the Proxy Server for Forward Proxy.)

Global Settings

Setting global preferences for proxy transfers requires root/admin privileges. To configure your global proxy settings, click the Global Preferences button. In the Global Preferences window, fill out the choices as follows:

  1. Check the Enable transfer proxy checkbox. Note that the transfer proxy facility is disabled by default.
  2. Enter the proxy server’s hostname or IP address, and enter the port number.
  3. Enable the Secure checkbox if your proxy server requires secure connections (recommended).
  4. Enter the proxy server’s Node API username and password. This is the Node API user you created when you were configuring the proxy server. (See Configuring the Proxy Server for Forward Proxy.)
