Specifying a conferencing app-specific proxy server

Configure a conferencing app-specific proxy server using Dvms.Proxy.x configuration parameters.

About this task

If your network does not implement a PAC file, configure a conferencing app-specific proxy server. If both proxy configuration methods are implemented, the Dvms.Proxy.x parameters for conferencing app network communications are used; the PAC file is not utilized.

For more information on proxy setup, see the Dolby Conference Phone Administrator's Guide.

Use one of these methods to configure a conferencing app-specific proxy server.

Procedure

  • Use the phone web interface:
    1. Navigate to Settings > Dolby Voice Conferencing Service > Proxy.
    2. In the Proxy Address field, type the proxy address.
    3. Set the Proxy Port by typing in the value or using the slider to set the value.
    4. In the Proxy User field, type the proxy authentication user name.
    5. In the Proxy Password field, type the proxy password.
  • Use Dolby Conferencing Console:
    1. From Dolby Conferencing Console, select a device and then click the Edit device configuration button.
    2. From Dolby Voice Conferencing Service > Proxy, drag Proxy Address to the device configuration.

      This parameter specifies a statically configured proxy server address, dedicated to the conferencing app. After configured, the phone goes through the specified proxy server to download the conferencing app. All network communications initiated from the conferencing app go through this proxy server.

    3. In the Dvms.Proxy.Address field, type the proxy address.
    4. Drag Proxy Port to the device configuration.

      By default, this parameter is set to 8080. It specifies the network port for the proxy server.

    5. Set Dvms.Proxy.Port by typing in a value or using the slider to set a value.
    6. Drag Proxy User to the device configuration.
    7. In the Dvms.Proxy.User field, type the proxy authentication user name.
    8. Drag Proxy Password to the device configuration.
    9. In the Dvms.Proxy.Password field, type the proxy authentication password.
