Configure the client settings

Configure the settings that Client Proxy uses to determine the location of the endpoint and when to redirect web traffic.

The endpoint can be located inside the network, outside the network, or connected to the network by VPN.
Note: Before you can save the policy, you must provide values for the customer ID and shared secret.


  1. From the McAfee ePO or McAfee ePO Cloud menu, select PolicyPolicy Catalog.
