The Proxy Settings page allows you to configure a proxy server used to connect to the remote server.

 

Proxy Mode

No proxy (direct connect)

No proxy server will be used to connect to the remote server.

 

Socks 4, Socks 4a, Socks 5 or HTTP Connect

A proxy server of the selected type is used to connect to the remote server.

 

Proxy Server

Specify the proxy server name (FQDN) or IP address to use.

 

Port
Specify the proxy server port to use.

 

Credential Mode

Do not use any credentials

When selected, no credentials are configured for the object. Connections that require credentials may prompt to enter credentials or fail to connect.

 

Use credentials from the parent folder (not available for Royal Server objects, Secure Gateway objects and Key Sequence Tasks)

When selected, Royal TS will look for a configured credential in the parent folder.

 

Specify username and password

When selected, a username and password can be provided. For domain accounts use the syntax "domain\username" (without the quotes).

 

Use an existing credential

When selected, assign an existing credential to the object using the drop-down list. Use the add button to add a new credential. Use the edit button to edit the selected credential.

Note

The drop-down list supports sorting and filtering "as you type" to easily find the correct credential.

 

Specify a credential name

When selected, enter or choose a credential name you want to assign to the object during connect-time.

Note

Assigning a credential by name is recommended when a team of users share the same configuration file. Each user can define his own credential as long as it is using the same name and saves the credential in his own personal and protected document. This makes sharing files across team members very easy while keeping credentials safe.
