Apple Safari Proxy Configuration

  1. Select Safari > Choose Preferences.

    The Safari Preferences dialog box is displayed.

  2. On the Advanced tab, click Change Settings.

    The Network pane of the System Preferences dialog box opens.

  3. Select the Web Proxy check box, and enter the following settings: IP address: (the domain name or IP address provided by your IT department); Port Number: (the proxy port number is 8080, unless you have been instructed to use 3128 or 8081)
  4. Click Apply Now.

    Your settings are saved and the Safari Preferences dialog box closes.

  5. Exit and restart Safari for your changes to take effect.
  6. Verify that you have successfully configured the Web Appliance as your proxy by visiting http://www.google.com and performing a search.

    Google.com should display and return search results as usual.

  7. Verify that the virus scanning and blocking is working by accessing http://www.eicar.org/download/eicar.com.

    You will see the Web Appliance "Blocked request" page if the virus scanning and blocking functionality is working properly. (eicar.com is a dummy virus used for testing purposes.)

If you encounter any problems with this configuration, contact your IT department.
