Configuring Proxy Server

Mobile Device Manager Plus uses this configuration to connect to internet. It is used for the Mobile Device Manager Plus server to contact the APNs, FCM, WNS servers and the managed mobile devices.

(If you're using MDM in Desktop Central), Proxy settings can be configured by navigating to Proxy under Settings dropdown in the left pane.
