Configuring Proxy Settings

In most cases Metalogix Content Matrix can automatically connect to SharePoint and authenticate license keys, through an environment's proxy setting, However, in some cases the proxy may need to be configured within Metalogix Content Matrix. In these cases users can specify the proxy settings though the connecting dialog.

There are two basic places where this proxy setting can be configured. The first of these is when activating a license key, and the second when connecting to SharePoint. The  dialogs for these options look slightly different, and the when you are using a proxy to connect to SharePoint, you have the additional option to Import Proxy from Internet Explorer.

Proxy Options Blank

To configure proxy settings:

1.In the Proxy server dialog, check the Enable proxy box.

2.Use the information in the following table to determine the appropriate action to take.
