Network Proxy Settings configuration

Apr 18, 2010

When you use a proxy server to connect to the Internet, you must specify the proxy server details. The Network Proxy Settings window lets you enter automatic configuration settings, proxy settings, and proxy server authentication settings. The Network Proxy settings let you connect to the Internet while you perform tasks such as activating the product or accessing the support options.


To configure Network Proxy Settings
  1. In the Norton Internet Security main window, in the Computer pane, click Settings.
  2. In the Settings window, click the Miscellaneous Settings bar to open it.
  3. In the Network Proxy Settings row, click Configure.

    You may need to scroll the window to see the option.
  4. In the Network Proxy Settings window, do the following:
    • If you want your browser to automatically detect network connection settings, under Automatic Configuration, check Automatically detect settings.
    • If the proxy server requires an automatic configuration URL, under Automatic Configuration, check Use automatic configuration script. Type the URL (such as file://c:/proxy.pac) in the URL box.
    • If your network uses a proxy server, under Proxy Settings, check Use a proxy server for HTTP connections. Type the HTTP address in the Address box and the port number in the Port box.
    • If your proxy server requires a user name and password, under Authentication, check I need authorization to connect through my firewall or proxy server. Type the user name in the Username box and password in the Password box.
  5. In the Network Proxy Settings window, click Apply.
