Proxy setup

Connectors normally have proxy settings in the Data Source that you can use. For Connectors that do not have a specific proxy setup, you can configure the Java Virtual Machine with additional proxy information.

To configure the proxy:

  1. In a command line, go to C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\Connect\WebServer\bin
  2. Version 4.4 and higher: Run tomcat9w //ES/ConnectWebServer

    Earlier versions: Run tomcat8w //ES/ConnectWebServer

  3. Select the Java tab.
  4. In Java Options, append to the arguments list the following. Enter each statement on a new line:



    -Dhttp.proxyHost=<proxy hostname/ip>

    -Dhttp.proxyPort=<proxy port>

    -Dhttps.proxyHost=<proxy hostname/ip>

    -Dhttps.proxyPort=<proxy port>

    If the proxy requires authentication, also append the following:

    -Dhttp.proxyUser=<proxy username>

    -Dhttp.proxyPassword=<proxy password>

    -Dhttps.proxyUser=<proxy username>

    -Dhttps.proxyPassword=<proxy password>

    If the proxy authentication is basic, append:


    If you need to exclude particular hosts from being proxied, you can append:


    You can add multiple hosts using the pipe separator:


  5. Click Apply.
  6. Select the General tab.
  7. Click Stop.
