authentiction to Azure AD for ADFS servers

Do the ADFS servers require authenticated or unauthenticated access to the two URLS, and when integrating with Azure MFA? The ADFS servers are behind an internet proxy server.

    The Azure MFA adapter is using winhttp proxy setting. So as long as you set your proxy at this level, that should work: netsh winhttp set proxy server:port.

    Also, why not cutting the middle man here and go Azure AD directly rather than using AD FS? Just curious :)
