I have realized that I cannot find any answer within the community on the use of proxy for FE appliances. (Even searched the CM Admin Guide.)

Therefore, I have logged a case with Support and here is the reply:

 

These are the commands that you need to use for configuring the proxy:

 

>en

config t

fenet proxy: Configure proxy settings

fenet proxy auth: Configure authentication settings fenet proxy auth basic: Configure basic authentication settings fenet proxy auth basic password: Configure basic authentication password fenet proxy auth basic password <password> (terminal,sensitive_param) fenet proxy auth basic user: Configure basic authentication username fenet proxy auth basic user <username> (terminal) fenet proxy host: Configure proxy host fenet proxy host <hostname:port> (terminal)

 

FAQ:

Question: Can CM can support Kerberos/NTLM authentication for the proxy?

Answer: CM won't support the Kerberos/NTLM authentication, only basic authentication is supported.
