Define the scan job's behavior as it connects to your network.

    1. If the proxy server is improperly configured, external and possibly internal links might be reported as broken.
    2. Proxy settings apply to the Manual Explore browser.
  4. Go to the Explore Options page and modify the User Agent value that the scan engine presents itself when making HTTP Requests. This is useful for filtering traffic generated by Content Scan jobs from your Web analytics reports.
  5. Click Save.
