  1. Open the SOTI MobiControl Administration Utility and choose Deployment Server from the menu on the left side of the window.
  2. Enter the proxy address into the Primary Agent Address field using the following format:
    Proxy TypeFormat
    HTTP(S) http://Username:Password@ProxyServer:ProxyPort/DeploymentServerAddress:DeploymentServerPort
    SOCKS One of:
    • socks://Username:Password@ProxyServer:ProxyPort/DeploymentServerAddress:DeploymentServerPort
    • socks://ProxyServer:ProxyPort/DeploymentServerAddress:DeploymentServerPort
  3. Click Apply to save your proxy settings.
