A proxy or a proxy server is an intermediary agent between your device and the internet. It serves as a hub through which internet requests are processed. Proxy servers can be used to improve the security of your network, as they can provide additional encryption services for your data and can be configured to block access to malicious websites.
In order to license your Robot through a proxy, do the following:
- Open the
license.configfile with a source code editing application, such as Notepad++.
The default location of
C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath\Studio\UiPath.
- Add the following elements to the file:
IAis the IP address of your device
PNis the Port Number of your network
UNis the desired username
PWis the desired password
- Save the changes.
- Proceed with activating the license according to the instructions in the Robot or Studio guide.
You can also configure a proxy server directly in Windows 10 or using Internet Explorer. Take into account that proxy settings defined in Windows 10 apply to Internet Explorer and are therefore global. This means they apply to all programs that use the proxy settings from Internet Explorer, including several web browsers like Google Chrome and Opera.
