Using LAN Zoo with a Proxy Server

Product: Zoo
Summary: Discusses how to bypass a proxy server to access a LAN Zoo server.

Today, many organizations use proxies to protect their users from intrusion and to use smaller amounts of publicly routed IP addresses. A proxy is a server that sits between you and the Internet. It receives all client requests to the Internet, fulfills the request itself, and then sends the information to the client.

Bypassing a proxy server

There are instances where you prefer to bypass the proxy and access the website or resource directly. A example is the locally available resource, like a LAN Zoo Server, which is available through a direct network access.

Windows offers support for adding and configuring proxies inside Internet Explorer’s settings.

You can choose to enable the option Bypass Proxy Server for local addresses to bypass any local addresses by following these steps:

  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Click Network and Internet, and then click Internet Options.
  3. In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Connections tab.
  4. Click the LAN Settings button.
  5. Select the Bypass proxy server for local addresses checkbox.
  6. Click OK to complete the proxy configuration process.
