Configure a Proxy Server
If your organization configured a proxy server to conceal your IP address, share an internet connection on your local network, or control internet access on your network, set the proxy configuration in Tenable Core.
Note: This proxy configuration only applies to updates and Tenable Core + Tenable.io Web Application Scanning connections. The proxy configuration for the application updates itself needs to be completed from the application user interface.
Before you begin:
- Log in to Tenable Core in a browser, as described in Log In to Tenable Core.
To configure a proxy server:
In the left navigation bar, click Update Management.
The Updates page appears.
In the Proxy Host box, type the hostname and port for your proxy server in the format hostname:port (for example, https://192.0.2.1:2345).
- (Optional) In the Proxy Username box, type a username for your proxy server.
(Optional) In the Proxy Password box, type a password for the proxy.
Click Save Proxy.
The system initiates your proxy configuration.
