Manually configuring proxy settings may be a complicated task for many end users. Use automatic proxy settings to ensure that correct proxy settings are applied without requiring any user intervention.
When enabled, automatic proxy settings are the primary proxy settings when OfficeScan agents update components either through automatic update or Update Now. For information on automatic update and Update Now, see OfficeScan Agent Update Methods.
If OfficeScan agents cannot connect using the automatic proxy settings, agent users with the privilege to configure proxy settings can use user-configured proxy settings. Otherwise, connection using the automatic proxy settings will be unsuccessful.
Proxy authentication is not supported.
