If you want to route and monitor all internet-bound HTTP/HTTPS traffic through a reliable HTTP Proxy, you can configure up to five proxy servers in CSM.

All public cloud communication from PCG and CSM is routed through the selected proxy server.

Proxy settings for PCG are independent of proxy settings for CSM. You can choose to have none or a different proxy server for PCG.

You can choose the following levels of authentication:

  • Credentials-based authentication.
  • Certificate-based authentication for HTTPS interception.
  • No authentication.


  1. Click System > Settings. Then click Configure on the panel titled Proxy Servers.
    Note: You can also provide these details when using the CSM Setup Wizard that is available when you first install CSM.
