Change proxy settings

As an example of how to change a proxy setting, we will change the proxy password.

  1. On the computer you installed the sensor on, navigate to install_dir/config/.

    Where install_dir is the installation sensor installation directory.

  2. Open the proxy.properties file, replace httpsAuthPasswordEncrypted with httpsAuthPassword.

  3. Add the proxy password values for these settings.

  4. Go to install_dir/cli where install_dir is the sensor installation directory.

  5. Run the applyproxysettings command.

    In the examples below, input_file is the path and file name containing the proxy settings.

    Linux

    ./applyproxysettings.sh -file input_file

    Windows

    applyproxysettings.bat -file input_file

  6. Restart the sensor to encrypt the proxy passwords and upload the proxy information.

    In the examples below, install_dir is the sensor installation directory.

    Linux

    Go to install_dir/cli and run the ./restart.bat command.

    Windows

    Go to install_dir/cli and run the restart.bat command.

What's next

Use the new password next time you log on to the proxy server.
