Proxy settings

Proxy-related information is contained inside the <proxy></proxy> XML tags. If a proxy server configuration is required for Internet access, use the fields here to specify that configuration so that FortiClient's functions can use Fortinet's Internet-based services. Only FortiClient-originated traffic uses these settings.
