Configuring the Proxy Server

Security Monitor Pro requires an Internet connection for uploading media files.  If you connect to the Internet via a proxy server then you must configure it in Security Monitor Pro to upload media files.

To configure the proxy server, click FTP Upload >> Configure upload settings >> Add / Edit >> Configure Proxy Settings.

Proxy Settings

  • Connection type: Connection type defines how to connect to the FTP server.  By default, Direct Connection is selected.  This will directly connect to an FTP Server without connecting through a proxy.  Following connection types are supported:

    If you do not know the proxy details, you can click on the Auto Detect option.  This option detects the Proxy settings configured in Internet explorer and displays them in the respective fields.  If that does not work, then you may need to contact your Network Administrator for assistance.
