Setup Summary

In order to connect to the Proxy Server, it is necessary to update your browser proxy settings so that web traffic is routed through the Proxy Server.

Traffic routed through the Proxy Server will cause browser errors and warnings when connecting to HTTPS sites. To prevent these errors and allow for normal internet browsing, it is necessary to install the Proxy Server Root Certificate as a Trusted Root Certificate Authority on your computer.

Note for Administrators:
