Use the Proxy Settings page in the IEAK 11 Wizard


Update: The retired, out-of-support Internet Explorer 11 desktop application has been permanently disabled through a Microsoft Edge update on certain versions of Windows 10. For more information, see Internet Explorer 11 desktop app retirement FAQ.

The Proxy Settings page of the Internet Explorer Customization Wizard 11 lets you pick the proxy servers used by your employees to connect for services required by the custom install package.

Using a proxy server lets you limit access to the Internet. You can also use the Additional Settings page of the wizard to further restrict your employees from changing the proxy settings.

To use the Proxy Settings page

  1. Check the Enable proxy settings box if you want to use proxy servers for any of your services.

  2. Type the address of the proxy server you want to use for your services into the Address of proxy box. In most cases, a single proxy server is used for all of your services.

    Proxy locations that don’t begin with a protocol (like, https:// or ftp://) are assumed to be a CERN-type HTTP proxy. For example, the entry proxy is treated the same as the entry https://proxy.

  3. Type the port for each service. The default value is 80.

  4. Check the Use the same proxy server for all addresses box to use the same proxy server settings for all of your services.

  5. Type any services that shouldn’t use a proxy server into the Do not use proxy server for addresses beginning with box.

    When filling out your exceptions, keep in mind:

    • Proxy bypass entries can begin with a protocol type, such as https://, https://, or ftp://. However, if a protocol type is used, the exception entry applies only to requests for that protocol.

    • Protocol values are not case sensitive and you can use a wildcard character (*) in place of zero or more characters.

    • You must use a semicolon between your entries.

    • This list is limited to 2064 characters.

  6. Check the Do not use proxy server for local (intranet) addresses to bypass your proxy servers for all addresses on your intranet.

  7. Click Next to go to the Security and Privacy Settings page or Back to go to the Automatic Configuration page.
