To access the Server Configuration dialog and modify the server configuration, connect to the PEM web interface, and select Server Configuration… from the Management menu. The PEM Server Configuration dialog opens as shown in Figure 6.6.
To modify a parameter value, locate the parameter, and modify the parameter value in the Value column. Use the following PEM Server configuration parameters to specify connection details that allow PEM to connect to the proxy server:
Use the proxy_server parameter to specify the IP address of the proxy server.
Specify a value of t in the proxy_server_authentication parameter to indicate that the proxy server will require PEM to authenticate when connecting; specify f if authentication is not required.
Specify a value of t in the proxy_server_enabled parameter if PEM is required to use a proxy server when retrieving the package list, or f if a proxy server is not configured.
Use the proxy_server_password parameter to provide the password associated with the user specified in proxy_server_username.
When you've finished updating the parameters required to configure the proxy server, click the Save icon in the upper-right corner of the dialog before closing the dialog.
