Setting up Forward Proxy over GAFE

Forward Proxy for GAFE is set up through the Google Admin console.

1. Log into admin.google.com and navigate to Device Management. Click on Chrome Management on the left-hand navigation bar. Click on User Settings. Make sure that you have the correct organization chosen on the left-hand menu and scroll down to Network. Click the dropdown menu under Proxy Settings – Proxy Mode and select Always use the proxy specified below. The following box will display. Enter your server hostname followed by “:” and your port number into the Proxy Server URL field. (Ex: Our hostname is southernacademy.lightspeedsystems.com and our port is 8093, so we entered “southernacademy.lightspeed.com:8093“) Click Save. 

Note: Prior to setting this up, make sure that your firewall allows connections to your Rocket over the appropriate port (the default port is 8080.)
