To ensure the proper functionality of the Fabasoft Folio Client, correct network settings (e.g. proxy) in the operating system are mandatory. The used web browsers must be configured so that they use these network settings.
The following chapters show how to define proxy settings.
We support the default method for defining a proxy server on the appropriate operating system. On Microsoft Windows, this configuration can be done in the „Proxy”configuration, on Apple macOS this could be done in the “System Settings -> Network -> Proxies”. On Ubuntu, this configuration has to be done via environment variables
For security reasons we only support the automatic proxy configuration via the direct configuration of the Proxy-Auto-Config URL (PAC-URL). We do not support automatically retrieving this URL via Web Proxy Autodiscovery Protocol.
We first look for a proxy server bypass configuration, then for a manually configured proxy server. If theres no bypass and no manually proxy server configuration we evaluate the PAC URL.
Our fallback for every error or misconfiguration is a direct connection to the server.
This file will be evaluated every 30 minutes and additionally on a change of the system configuration, except on Ubuntu, there you have to restart the system.
If the URL or any proxy server evaluated from the URL is not reachable it will be ignored for the next 30 minutes.
If the script delivered from the PAC URL hangs or needs longer than 5 seconds, we abort the evaluation.
You can also define a specific proxy server for the Fabasoft Folio Client only. This setting can be defined in the following registry key:
Value name: PROXYSERVER
Value data: <proxy server>(:<port>)
Note: If the value is empty, the policy is ignored. If there is no port configured the ports 8080, 3128 and 80 are tried. The proxy server defined here must match the proxy server of the use web browser.
