Instructions provided describe how to configure ArcGIS Server for the .NET Framework to work with a proxy server. This applies to Web mapping applications created in Manager or with applications using the .NET ADF.
Many organizations require end users to connect through a proxy server to access public resources on the Internet. When using ArcGIS Server Manager or creating a custom Application using the Web ADF, the proxy server may need to be configured if trying to connect to external resources that need to be accessed by way of a proxy server, such as ArcGIS Online services or other publicly available ArcGIS Servers, ArcIMS Servers, or (OGC) WMS Servers.
At version 9.3, a new file was added named ProxyServer.config that allows the ArcGIS Server Manager to be configured to use a proxy server. The Post Installation does not currently configure this file, so it needs to have its parameters set manually.
