Configuring LAN clients to make a Proxy connection
Posted by Adrien de Croy (Import) on 14 September 2005 02:09 PM

To use the Proxy method for clients connections, configure the particular application on the client machine to point at the IP address (and enter the appropriate port) of the WinGate server.

You will need to check with specific Application documentation on how this is done for your particular program.

There is no other configuration required for the client workstation.

Note: Whenever an application is configured to use the Proxy method, that application(program) will be directed through the appropriate proxy service in WinGate. The application will not use any other connection method (NAT or WGIC) even if they are installed and working on the the same machine.

Since the introduction of using NAT and Transparent Redirection abilities in WinGate, there are now very few occasions where you should need to use a proxy directly.
