By configuring the proxy server, you can establish a secure connection with the Carbon Black Cloud. All the outgoing network traffic from the Carbon Black Cloud Workload appliance to the Carbon Black Cloud can flow through the configured proxy server. You can configure a proxy server of type HTTPS, SOCKS4, and SOCKS5.


The proxy support for appliance is available from version 1.0.2 or later.

  3. Click the Proxy tab, and then click Edit.
    1. Select the required proxy type as HTTPS, SOCKS4, or SOCKS5.
    2. Enter the proxy server name without the HTTPS header. Do not enter https:// header.
    3. Enter the port on which the proxy server listens to.
