This topic provides a procedure for setting up a proxy that is used across NetWitness Suite modules and services.

Note: Proxy support is only for HTTP and HTTPS proxies and not SOCKS5.

You can configure a proxy that is used across NetWitness Suite modules and services in the System View > Advance Configuration panel. The Proxy Settings in the Advanced Configuration panel set up a proxy to be used wherever a proxy is needed in NetWitness Suite. These settings override any proxy settings configured for an individual service or module, such as Malware Analysis or Live.

To configure a proxy for use across NetWitness Suite modules:

  1. Go to ADMIN > System.
  2. In the options panel, select HTTP Proxy Settings. The HTTP Proxy Settings panel is displayed.

  3. Click the Enable checkbox.
    The fields where you configure the proxy settings are activated.
  4. Type the hostname for the proxy server and the port used for communications on the proxy server.
  5. (Optional) Type the username and password that serve as credentials to access the proxy server if authentication is required.
  6. (Optional) Enable Use NTLM Authentication and type the NTLM domain name.
  7. (Optional) Enable Use SSL if communications use Secure Socket Layer.
  8. To save and apply the configuration, click Apply.
    The proxy is immediately available for use throughout NetWitness Suite modules and services, for example,  Live and Malware Analysis.
