  • Microsoft Windows: All Supported Versions
  • Apple macOS: All Supported Versions

Question

Does the Cb Defense sensor support proxy server authentication?

Answer

Yes, proxy server authentication is supported. Typically end users will not be required to enter their credentials for proxy authentication because the sensor will attempt to auto-detect the pre-existing proxy server and proxy credential configuration from the local system operating system (when applicable). However, this should be tested prior to sensor deployment.

 


Additional Notes

  • If the automatic proxy detection doesn’t succeed, first specify server and port with the following command (authentication can be added as needed)
(Windows Sensor): PROXY_SERVER=<server>:<port>, PROXY_USER=<username>, and PROXY_PASSWD=<password>

or

(MAC Sensor): -p <server>:<port> -x <username>:<password>
  • Optionally, also specify the following option
LAST_ATTEMPT_PROXY_SERVER=<server>:<port>
PROXY_SERVER=10.10.10.1:8000 PROXY_USER=user01 PROXY_PASSWD=P*ssw0rd
