Configuring proxy server connection settings

Proxy server connection settings are used for updating databases, activating the application, and external services.

If you use NGINX as a proxy server, configure the client_max_body_size setting: the value of the client_max_body_size setting must be equal to the maximum size of the object sent by Kaspersky Endpoint Agent for processing to Kaspersky Sandbox. Otherwise NGINX will block objects that go above the specified value. The default value is 1 MB.

To configure proxy server connection settings:

  1. Open the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console.
  2. In the console tree, select the Policies folder.
  3. Select Kaspersky Endpoint Agent policy and open its properties window in one of the following ways:
    • Double-click the policy name.
    • Select Properties in the policy context menu.
    • Select the Configure policy settings item in the right part of the window.
  4. In the Application settings section select the General settings subsection.
  5. Select one of the following proxy service usage options:
    • Do not use proxy server
    • Automatically detect proxy server address
    • Use proxy server with specified settings
  6. If you select the Automatically detect proxy server address option, the proxy server for further telemetry transmission is detected automatically.
  7. If you select the Use proxy server with specified settings option, specify the address and port of the proxy server you want to connect to in the Server name or IP address and Port fields.

    The default port number is 8080.

  8. If you want to use NTLM authentication (NT LAN Manager Network Authentication Protocol) for connecting to the proxy server:
    1. Select the Use NTLM authentication by user name and password check box.
    2. In the User name field, enter the name of the user, whose account will be used for proxy server authentication.
    3. In the Password field, enter the password for connecting to the proxy server.

      You can make password characters visible by clicking Show to the right of the Password field.

  9. If you do not want to use the proxy server for internal addresses of your organization, select the Bypass proxy server for local addresses check box.
  10. Click Apply.

    As a result, you return to the policy properties window.

  11. In the upper right corner of the settings group, change the switch from Unaffected by policy to Under policy.
  12. Click OK.

Proxy server connection settings are configured.
