Configuring Proxy Settings for Online Activation

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:

  1. Open the license.config file with a source code editing application, such as Notepad++.

Note

The default location of license.config is C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath\Studio\UiPath.

  1. Add the following elements to the file:
    <ProxyIP>IA</ProxyIP>, where IA is the IP address of your device
    <ProxyPort>PN</ProxyPort>, where PN is the Port Number of your network
    <ProxyUsername>UN</ProxyUsername>, where UN is the desired username
    <ProxyPassword>PW</ProxyPassword>, where PW is the desired password
  2. Save the changes.
  3. 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.
