Question

GMS Core Mail Processing & Delivery includes a caching Web and FTP proxy. The proxy can be used by anyone within your organisation to obtain connections to the Internet.

Answer

The proxy server included with GMS is enabled by default. The WWW proxy accepts connections from any IP address but will only serve pages to those users connecting from within the IP address range defined under LocalIP.

The Proxy server treats requests for WWW pages in exactly the same way as the SMTP server treats requests to relay mail. If the connection is from an IP outside the range defined under LocalIP a page is returned stating "Proxy Denied"

The range of IP’s that can use the Proxy Server can be edited under Security>LocalIP. By default this contains the Class C address space associated with the IP address defined on The network interface card of the server.

For builds higher than 3037, the proxy server is disabled by default.
