Connecting Content Station 9 to Enterprise Server through a proxy server

Connecting Content Station 9 to Enterprise Server through a proxy server

Info: This feature requires Content Station version 9.4.1 or higher.

To connect Content Station to Enterprise Server through a proxy server, follow these steps:

Step 1. On the system on which Content Station is run, configure the proxy settings of the operating system.

Note: For details, consult the documentation for Windows or Mac OS.

Step 2. In the WWSettings.xml file of Content Station, comment-out the following option:

<SCEnt:Proxy address="proxy_address" user="proxy_user" password="proxy_password"/>

The format is as follows:

<SCEnt:Proxy address="<ADDRESS>:<PORT>" user=<USERNAME> password=<PWD> type=<PROXYTYPE> httptunnel=<PROXYTUNNEL> authorization=<PROXYAUTH>/>

Info: When using Content Station 9.4.1, only the attribute 'proxy address' is supported; all other attributes are ignored. Making use of the other attributes requires Content Station 9.5.0 or higher.

Note: The attributes 'proxy address, 'user' and 'password' are mandatory.

Step 3. Replace proxy_address by the IP and port number of the proxy server.

Example: 172.20.16.128:8080.

Step 4. (Only supported by Content Station 9.5.0 or higher) Enter the values for username and password.

Step 5. (Optional and only supported by Content Station 9.5.0 or higher) Make use of the other available options:

  • <PROXYTYPE> Defines the proxy type. Possible values:
  • SOCKS4
  • SOCKS5
  • HTTP

Note: When this option is not set, 'HTTP' is used as default.

  • <PROXYTUNNEL> Defines whether HTTP Proxy tunneling should be used or not. Set to "true" when tunneling should be used.
  • <PROXYAUTH> Defines the proxy authorization protocol. Possible values:
  • basic
  • digest
  • gssnegotiate
  • ntlm
  • any
  • anysafe

Note: When this option is not set, 'any' is used as default.

Example:<SCEnt:Proxy address="172.20.22.210:8080" user="administrator" password="n@n0m@c" type="SOCKS4" httptunnel="true" authorization="any"/>
