Using a Proxy (Windows only)

A Windows View device can connect through a proxy, since View for Windows v4.88.

To enable and set up this feature a file needs to be placed on the device.

Please follow these steps:

  1. Open the device (e.g. use a tool like Teamviewer, or physically control the device by keyboard/mouse)
  2. Close GoBright View (using Alt+F4) if needed
  3. Go to the installed location of GoBright View, and open the subfolder ‘data’.
    Typically the path is: c:gobright-viewdata
  4. Create a file called proxy.json and use the template below
  5. Fill in the address and port of the proxy server
  6. Save the file
  7. Start GoBright View

The proxy will now be used by the connectivity to the platform.

The browser (e.g. for embedding sites, downloading dynamic data) uses the Windows system proxy settings.

Basic template for the proxy.json file:

{
"address": "[ip-address-of-the-proxy-server]",
"port": "[port-of-the-proxy-server]",
"auth": {
"type": "none"
},
"bypass": ""
}

Template for the proxy.json file, with basic authentication to authenticate with the proxy:

{
"address": "[ip-address-of-the-proxy-server]",
"port": "[port-of-the-proxy-server]",
"auth": {
"type": "basic",
"username": "[proxy username]",
"password": "[proxy password]",
},
"bypass": ""
}

Template for the proxy.json file, using a bypass list for specific addresses:

{
"address": "[ip-address-of-the-proxy-server]",
"port": "[port-of-the-proxy-server]",
"auth": {
"type": "none"
},
"bypass": "*.company.local,192.168.1.*"
}
