Configure Proxy Server

Sometimes, the VNet in which the GigaVUE‑FM is launched may not have access to the Internet. Without Internet access, GigaVUE‑FM cannot connect to the Azure API endpoints. For GigaVUE‑FM to connect to Azure, a proxy server must be configured.

To create a proxy server:

  1. From the left navigation pane, select Inventory > VIRTUAL > Azure > Settings. The Configuration page appears.
  2. Under Proxy Server tab, click Add. The Add Proxy Server page appears.
  3. Select or enter the appropriate information as described in the following table.




    The name of the proxy server.


    The host name or the IP address of the proxy server.

    Host IP Address Type

    The type of the Host IP address that indicate whether the proxy server IP address is private or public to the VNet.


    The port number used by the proxy server for connecting to the Internet.


    (Optional) The username of the proxy server.


    The password of the proxy server.


    (Optional) The type of the proxy server used to connect to the VNet.


    The domain name of the client accessing the proxy server.


    (Optional) The name of the workstation or the computer accessing the proxy server.

  4. Click Save. The new proxy server configuration is added to the Proxy Server Configuration page. The proxy server is also listed in the Azure Connection page in GigaVUE‑FM.

Note:  If you change any of the fields in the Proxy Server Configuration page after the initial connection is established between the GigaVUE‑FM and Azure, then you must also edit the connection and select the proxy server again and save (in the Azure Connection Page). Otherwise, GigaVUE‑FM will not use the new configuration that was saved and may be disconnected from the Azure platform. Refer to Create Monitoring Domain.
