NOTE: The Netop Portal is changing its name to Impero Connect Portal. All service domains will be migrated on September 15th and Administrators are advised to add the new URLs in their network configuration by then.


NOTE: For customers with Guests and Hosts clients older than version 12.90, allow all backdrop.cloud and netop.com domains at least until the 15th of October.



When you configure Netop Remote Control to use the Netop Portal communication, there are situations when access must be allowed through a company's proxy server and/or firewall.

Rules or exceptions may need to be created that allow communication through a proxy server or firewall to communicate with the Netop Portal 
service.

Proxy settings

A proxy server is a server application or appliance that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from servers that provide those resources.

The Proxy settings can be defined on both Guest and Host, from ToolsProgram OptionsGeneral Proxy.

By default, no proxy is used when initializing the Netop Portal communication profile. This setting can be changed, to either attempt to detect and use the current proxy settings of the system (usually they can be seen by opening Internet OptionsConnectionsLAN Settings from Windows) or to manually specify a proxy server address and port to be used.

NOTE: Proxy authentication is not yet supported in this version.
