Configuring Internet Explorer for Passing Credentials


The Proxy Module machine must be listed in Internet Explorer's Local Internet security zone for all computers using it in order to function properly. If it is not in the Local Internet, then credentials will not be automatically provided. Even if the credentials are entered manually, the Proxy Module cannot authenticate with results when not listed in Internet Explorer's Local Internet.

If the Proxy Module machine is already in the Local Internet settings, you may skip this step.

The following steps adds the Proxy Module machine to Internet Explorer's Local Internet:

  • Start Internet Explorer.

  • Choose Tools from the menu, and select Internet Options.

  • Choose the Security tab.

  • Choose Local Internet from the list of zones.

  • Click the Sites button to edit the local internet.

  • Click Advanced to manually add a site.

  • Uncheck Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone

  • Enter the full hostname of your proxying machine, for example

  • Click Add to add the site to the Trusted Sites.

  • Click Close to close the Advanced window.

  • Click OK to close the Local Intranet window.

  • Click OK to close the Internet Options window.

Internet Explorer is now configured to pass credentials to the proxy machine. This is a per-user configuration, and will need to be configured for any user that is authenticating via the Proxy Module.
