Defining proxy server settings

If the settings of your network include the use of a proxy server to gain access to the Internet, the same proxy server settings are required by Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows and Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac to connect to Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud.

You can define the proxy server settings during the following operations:

Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac uses the specified proxy server to connect to Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud. If a connection attempt using this proxy server is unsuccessful, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac cannot connect to Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud.

When Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows has to connect to Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud, the security application tries to connect by using its list of connections. This list contains a record for the direct connection (connection without a proxy server), a record for the proxy server settings specified in the distribution package, and records for previously successful connections.

If any connection attempts by using records from the list are unsuccessful, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows uses the auto-discovery feature to find the applicable proxy server. If auto-discovery is unsuccessful, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows cannot connect to Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud.

When you prepare or download the distribution package of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows, use the procedure in this section only if you want to specify a preferred proxy server.

To define proxy server settings in distribution packages of Kaspersky security applications:

  1. Select the Specify proxy server check box.
  2. Specify the proxy server address and port.
  3. Specify the user name and password that will be used to connect to the specified proxy server.

    You can click the Show button to view and check the specified password.

  4. Click Next.

The proxy server settings are defined. Depending on the operation during which you define these settings, they are applied to the distribution package of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac, or both.
