Steps

Configuring a web proxy for the transaction

Each transaction can be configured to use a proxy server if required. To set a proxy server transactions, do the following:

  1. Ensure that you do not have Make proxy settings per-machine (rather than per-user)group policy enabled on the player machine.
  2. Run Gpedit.msc.
  3. In the left pane, expand Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components.
  4. Select Internet Explorer.
  5. In the right pane, double-click Make proxy settings per-machine (rather than per-user).
  6. Select Not Configured and then click OK.
  7. Run Gpupdate /force.
  8. Restart the SolarWinds SEUM Playback Player service.
  9. Go to the Transaction edit page and expand the “Advanced” section.
  10. Fill in the Proxy URL field. Use the complete proxy URL in the following format http://123.123.123.123:8080.
  11. Save the transaction.

 

Configuring a web proxy for the player

If you do not want to define proxy per transactions, you can define it for the whole player. Configure the web proxy in Internet Explorer and then change the computer settings to make the proxy settings per-machine instead of per-user.

  1. Run Gpedit.msc.
  2. In the left pane, expand Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components.
  3. Select Internet Explorer.
  4. In the right pane, double-click Make proxy settings per-machine (rather than per-user).
  5. Select Enabled and then click OK.
  6. Run Gpupdate /force.
  7. Restart the SolarWinds SEUM Playback Player service.
  8. Configure Internet Explorer to use a web proxy (Microsoft KB 135982).  

If the proxy is defined “per-machine,” any setting that is defined “per-transaction” through the transaction edit page will be ignored.
