Both the Patch Manager console and Application role server need to connect to the Internet. If you require either component to connect to the Internet using a proxy server, enter the proxy server information in the applicable dialogs.

Configuring Console Proxy Settings

Complete the following procedure to configure proxy settings for connections from the Patch Manager console.

To configure proxy settings for the console:

  1. In the left pane of the Patch Manager console, select Administration and Reporting.
  2. In the center pane, click General Settings.
  3. Click Proxy Configuration.
  4. In the Console Proxy Settings window, select Use a proxy server while synchronizing, and then complete the form for your environment.
  5. Click OK to save your settings and close the dialog.

Configuring Server Proxy Settings

Complete the following procedure to configure proxy settings for connections from the Patch Manager Application role server(s).

To configure proxy settings for the Patch Manager Application server:

  1. In the left pane of the Patch Manager console, expand Administration and Reporting, and then select Software Publishing.
  2. In the Actions pane (right), click Synchronization Settings.
  3. In the Third Party Updates Options window, click the Proxy Settings tab.
  4. Select Use a proxy server when synchronizing, and then complete the form for your environment.
  5. Click OK to save your settings and close the dialog.

Note: When changing the server proxy settings and also using an AD account for the EminentWare Data Grid Server service, it may be needed to also update the GPOs applied to the AD service account, stop the service and clear the user's Windows profile.
