Specifying a proxy configuration with a PAC URL

Configure a PAC URL that instructs the Dolby Conference Phone to automatically discover the proxy settings based on the target URL.

About this task

Dolby Conference Phone supports the WPAD method for locating the PAC URL. Enable this to trigger automatic proxy discovery in the network. This is the recommended mechanism, because it allows for more flexibility in dynamically allocating proxy resources in your network.

Additionally, you can use one of these methods to specify the proxy configuration:

Procedure

  • Use the Dolby Conference Phone web interface:
    1. Navigate to Settings > Network > Proxy.
    2. Switch Enable WPAD to On, and then complete these steps:
      • In the Proxy Server Login Name field, type a proxy authentication user name.
      • In the Proxy Server Login Password field, type a proxy authentication password.

      If your network does not implement WPAD, leave this parameter off and manually set the PAC URL by using the PAC Configuration URL field as described in the next step.

    3. If your network does not implement PAC, leave Enable WPAD off (described in the previous step) and complete these steps:
      • In the PAC Configuration URL field, enter the PAC URL.
      • Optional: In the Proxy Server Login Name field, type a proxy authentication user name.
      • Optional: In the Proxy Server Login Password field, type a proxy authentication password.
  • Use the Dolby Conferencing Console:
    1. From the Dolby Conferencing Console, select a device, and then click the Edit device configuration button.

    2. If your network supports WPAD, from Network > Proxy, drag Enable WPAD to the device configuration. Switch Network.Proxy.AutoDiscover to ON, and then complete these steps:
      • Drag Proxy Server Login Name to the device configuration. In the Network.Proxy.UserName field, type a proxy authentication user name.
      • Drag Proxy Server Login Password to the device configuration. In the Network.Proxy.Password field, type a proxy authentication password.

      If your network does not implement WPAD, leave this parameter off and manually set the PAC URL by using Network.Proxy.PacUrl as described in the next step.

    3. If your network does not support WPAD, navigate to Network > Proxy and then complete these steps:
      • Drag PAC Configuration URL to the device configuration. In the Network.Proxy.PacURL field, type the PAC URL.

        The phone uses the Network.Proxy.PacUrl parameter to determine which proxy server to communicate with in the BlueJeans infrastructure.

      • Optional: Drag Proxy Server Login Name to the device configuration. In the Network.Proxy.UserName field, type a proxy authentication user name.
      • Optional: Drag Proxy Server Login Password to the device configuration. In the Network.Proxy.Password field, type a proxy authentication password.
