What is a vPro Proxy and how to create a vPro proxy ?
A vPro Proxy is used to relay the vPro commands/actions from the KServer to the vpro machines if you are behind a restrictive firewall or have port 5900 blocked.
A vPro Proxy is required if the following
- The target vPro machines are behind a firewall and you want to remote power up/force power down. The vPro Proxy is on the same LAN and requires no addition configuration.
- The target vPro machines are behind a firewall and you want to connect to them via KVM. The vPro Proxy is on the same LAN and has a public IP address and port configured. You provide the VSA with the public IP address and port used by the vPro Proxy using the Configure vPro Proxy dialog.
- You want to enable (activate) target vPro machines via KVM without entering a consent code each time a KVM session is started. The vPro Proxy shares the same DNS server as the target machines and the vPro Proxy has a certificate appropriately configured. The certificate is only used when the vPro machine is enabled (activated). After that, KVM sessions start without entering a consent code.
Only one KVMView session can run at a time, per vPro Proxy. The vPro Proxy requires Windows XP or later and does not have to be a vPro machine.
