Device Monitoring Studio - PC Connections Data Monitoring Logging and Analyzing Software
This page allows you to configure the proxy server used by features Check for Updates and Downloader. In most cases, you don't need to make any changes, as defaults will work on majority of installations.
When Device Monitoring Studio establishes a connection to remote server, it always does it over HTTP protocol over the 80 port. If your computer must use HTTP proxy when accessing HTTP resources, you may configure the proxy settings on this page. In addition, if your proxy server requires authentication, you may also configure credentials to use.
There are four options you can use to configure a proxy server:
will use the HTTP proxy server myserver.com on port 80 (the default).
will use the HTTP proxy server myserver.com on port 8080
There are three authentication options you can use:
When you configure the Device Monitoring Studio to use the entered credentials, it stores entered password in registry under the HKEY_CURRENT_USER key. It uses encryption to store the password. Only the same user is able to decrypt the password.
That is, if encrypted password is copied to another computer, an attacker will not be able to get the plain text password.
