If the target website or web application you intend to scan is only reachable via an HTTP proxy, you will need to configure Acunetix On-Premises to make use of that HTTP proxy server before running the scan.

You can set different proxy settings per Target in Acunetix On-Premises. This is useful if different Targets you choose to scan make use of different proxy settings.

In order to configure an HTTP proxy, navigate to an existing Target > HTTP > Enable Proxy Server

Proxy server

You may specify the HTTP proxy server and port, together with any authentication details (only if required).
