Proxy settings

The <proxy></proxy> XML tags contain proxy-related information. 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.
