ETP Client configuration settings

An ETP administrator defines the behavior of ETP Client on the Client Configuration tab. When the administrator makes changes to the settings on this tab, the changes are applied to all installed ETP clients in approximately 10 minutes.

The Client Configuration tab provides these fields:

  • Entitlement Code. Contains the entitlement code required to install ETP mobile client on enterprise computers and activate the client app on mobile devices.

  • Enable ETP Client. This option enables ETP Client and allows you to forward traffic to ETP.

  • Allow Users to Disable ETP Client. If enabled, this setting lets end users disable ETP Client on their device. End users can click Disable when viewing the advanced client settings.

  • Allow Uninstall on Windows. If enabled, this setting allows end users to uninstall ETP Client on their Windows machine. When this setting is disabled, an end user cannot uninstall ETP Client unless they have the entitlement code.

  • Roll Back ETP Client. Rolls back ETP Client to the previous approved version. If you enable this setting to undo an upgrade, you need to also approve the previous ETP Client version. For more information about rollback, see Software rollback.

  • Automatic Upgrades for Critical Patches. Upgrades ETP Client with security patches to fix security vulnerabilities, support OS updates, and resolve critical issues to ETP Client features. You can select to automatically apply these updates when they are available, or you can download, test, and approve the patch like any ETP Client software upgrade. For more information, see Security patches.

  • ETP Client Logging. Enable or disable ETP client logging so that the URLs and IP addresses accessed by the end user are not revealed.

  • Transparent Traffic Interception. Allows ETP Client to intercept and capture traffic without modifying browser or operating system settings. DNS traffic is directed to ETP resolvers, while web traffic is directed to ETP Proxy. For more information, see Transparent traffic interception.

  • Configure ETP Client as local computer web proxy. If enabled to do so, this setting configures ETP Client as the local web proxy on the user's machine. You can choose to overwrite an existing local computer web proxy, overwrite settings when there's no proxy configured on the machine, or never modify these settings.

    • If you choose Yes to overwrite settings, ETP client is configured as the local web proxy. This setting is useful when your network does not have an on-premises proxy. This setting also removes any PAC file configuration that was set in the browser or operating system proxy settings. If you configure ETP Client as a local proxy, you cannot restore PAC file or proxy settings by changing this setting to No or Only if there‚Äôs no local proxy.

    • If you choose Only if there's no local proxy, ETP client is configured as the local web proxy only when there's no local proxy already configured. You may want to select this option if you manage the on-premises proxy setting on some computers in your network.

    • If you choose No, ETP client is not configured as the local web proxy on the user's machine. You may want to select this option if you manage on-premises proxy settings on all computers in your network.

The policy setting Overwrite Device Proxy Settings functions the same as the Configure ETP Client as local computer web proxy setting. However, the Overwrite Device Proxy Settings policy setting takes precedence over the Configure ETP Client as local computer web proxy client setting.

  • Proxy Port. If ETP Client is configured as the local web proxy, the user's computer listens for traffic on this port. By default, the proxy listens for traffic on port 8080. Even if ETP Client is not configured as the local web proxy, this configuration still applies and may conflict with other applications that try to use this port.

If an ETP administrator makes changes to these behavior settings, the changes are applied to all installed ETP clients in approximately 10 minutes.
