When a Proxy Server is Part of the Network Configuration

If a proxy server must be used to access the remote server, the printer’s proxy setting must be set to connect to the server.
There are typically four properties associated with a proxy server:
  • The proxy server scheme:
    HTTP
    or
    HTTPS
  • The proxy server address
  • The proxy server port (optional)
  • The username and password for the proxy (optional)
To supply the address of the proxy server (assuming a default port and no username/password), configure the proxy setting as follows:
! U1 setvar "weblink.ip.conn1.proxy" "https://my.internal.proxy/"
In this scenario the proxy address is
my.internal.proxy
and the scheme is
HTTPS
. The default port (1080) will be used. No username or password will be used to authenticate with the proxy.
To specify an alternate port configure the proxy as follows:
! U1 setvar "weblink.ip.conn1.proxy" "https://my.internal.proxy:3128/"
To specify a username and password configure the proxy as follows:
! U1 setvar "weblink.ip.conn1.proxy" "https://user:pass@my.internal.proxy/"
The proxy username, password, and the rest of the URL must follow the rules specified in RFC3986 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3986.txt).
