Configuring Proxy Settings

If the Trend Micro Security (for Mac) administrator grants you the privileges, you can configure the agent to connect to its parent server through a proxy server.

The agent connects to its parent server to update components and report its status. If the agent cannot connect to its parent server, it connects to the ActiveUpdate server to update components. Internet connection is required to connect to the ActiveUpdate server.

  2. Click the settings icon () and select Proxy Settings.

    3. Click OK.
  4. Select Connect using proxy.
  5. Select a proxy protocol.
  6. Type the name or IP address of the proxy server.
  7. Type the port number of the proxy server.
  8. If the proxy server requires authentication, type the authentication user name and password.
