Introduction:

How to configure the AdminConsole2 to access the Web Archive using a Proxy Server

Background:

In some environments where internet access requires routing through a proxy server, the Admin
   Console2 (aka adminconsoleapp) will need to route the requests via the webgtw (Web Gateway) probe.

 

The webgtw probe will be configured to use a proxy server and then the adminconsole to pass the request
   through the webgtw.

Instructions:

Deploying and configuring the Web Gateway probe

  1. download the webgtw probe into the local archive

       Note: You can perform this from the IM client or you can download the package from the
                   web archive directly
                 http://support.nimsoft.com/Default.aspx?center=felles/archive

  2. deploy webgtw to the Primary Hub 

  3. Using Raw Configure configure the ProxyServer and Proxy port on the probe

Configure the adminconsoleapp to use the webgtw

  1. using Raw Configure to configure the adminconsole webapp 
        wasp ~~> Raw Configure 

  2. Navigate to
        webapps ~~> adminconsoleapp ~~> custom ~~> uncrypted 

  3. Set the webgtw_address to the UIM address of the webgtw probe
       ex. /Domain/HubName/HubRobotName/webgtw
