About Network Proxy settings

A proxy server regulates access to the Internet, and prevents external devices from accessing your network. If you are on a network that uses a proxy server to connect to the Internet, you can provide proxy server details to Identity Safe. You can use the Network Proxy settings window to specify the automatic configuration URL, the proxy settings, and the authentication details. Norton Identity Safe uses the proxy settings and authentication details to connect to the Internet automatically, whenever required. For example, LiveUpdate uses the specified proxy server settings to retrieve updates. You must ensure that you specify the proxy server details for LiveUpdate to run successfully.

The Network Proxy settings window lets you specify the following settings::

Automatic Configuration

Lets you specify the automatic configuration URL or script to manage Internet access.

You have the following options:

  • Automatically detect settings

    Lets your browser detect the network settings automatically.

    If you do not want to override your manual settings for network connections, you must disable this option.

  • Use automatic configuration script

    Lets your browser use the automatic configuration URL or script to manage Internet access.

    Use the URL box to provide the HTTP URL or the HTTPS URL.
