Defining a Proxy Configuration File URL

  • Updated

If your organization uses proxy servers, the hosts in the network need to know through which proxies to send relevant traffic. You can configure the Cato Clients to pull a proxy configuration file (PAC file) from a specific URL.

You can define PAC files for these Cato Management Application objects:

  • Account

  • Groups or User Groups

  • Users

When a PAC file is configured for multiple objects, the most specific object takes precedence as shown in the following list:

  1. Users (highest priority)

  2. Groups or User Groups

  3. Account (lowest priority)

For example, the user settings for a PAC file URL takes precedence over a PAC file URL configured for a group.

Defining a PAC File URL for Your Account

To define a PAC file URL for your account:

  1. From the navigation menu, click Access > Client Access.

  2. Expand the Proxy Configuration File section.

  3. Select Enable PAC File for SDP Clients.
