Overview

This article provides steps to configure a web proxy for the WPM Player. 

Environment

All WPM versions

Steps

Each transaction can be configured to use a proxy server if required.

To set a proxy server transaction:

  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 WPM Playback Player service.
  9. Go to the Transaction edit page and expand the Advanced section.
  10. Provide a complete Proxy URL that uses 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 a supported browser and then change the computer settings to make the proxy settings per-machine instead of per-user.

To configure a web proxy for the Player:

  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 click OK.
  6. Run Gpupdate /force.
  7. Restart the WPM 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 is ignored.
