Configure web proxy settings

If your SolarWinds Orion server does not have Internet access, you can use a proxy server to allow the Orion server to connect to certain pages and websites. Use a proxy server to:

  • Access the THWACK community
  • Access the product blog
  • Check for maintenance updates

To configure web proxy settings:

  1. In the Orion Web Console, click Settings > All Settings > Product specific settings > Proxy Settings.
  2. Select Use the following settings, and specify the IP address and port number of the proxy server.
  3. If the proxy server requires authentication, select the check box, and specify the user name and password.
  4. Enter a URL, and click Test connection to verify that you can reach the destination address through the proxy.
  5. Click Save.
