  1. In the main menu bar of the vCloud Usage Meter Web interface, select Settings > Network Connectivity.
  2. On the Network Connectivity page, select the proxy connection type.
  3. Enter the IP address or the host name of the network proxy server in Proxy Server text box.
  4. Enter the port number in the text box next to the IP address of the network proxy server.
    The port number value must be a number between 0 and 65535.
  5. Enter the user name and password.
  6. Click Save.
    You receive a Network Connectivity settings saved. message after the settings are correctly populated and saved.
