The table in this section displays the currently active system settings of Threat Defender. To change these settings, click the button in the last column of the table.

The settings screen contains the following elements:

Field Description
Hostname Enter the hostname of Threat Defender. Do not use full domain names as hostname.
System Uri Enter the URI you want to use in emails and PDF reports to identify Threat Defender.
GDPR Mode Select a data protection mode for Threat Defender:

2. Proxy

If you employ a proxy server in your network, navigate to Settings > General to configure Threat Defender for proxy access.

The table displays the configured proxies. The slider switch in the first column allows you to enable () or disable () the proxy. The buttons in the last column allow you to edit or delete the respective proxy.

To set up a new proxy, click the ADD PROXY button at the top of the screen.

While it is possible to configure multiple proxies, only one proxy may be active at a time. When you set up a new proxy, it is enabled by default and any previously active proxy is automatically disabled.

When you add or edit a proxy, the settings screen is displayed with the following elements:

Field Description
/ The slider switch indicates whether proxy access is enabled or disabled.
Proxy Enter the URI of the proxy server, e.g. http://proxy.example.com:8080. If you also want to specify a username and password for the proxy, use the following format: http://username:password@proxy.example.com:8080
Note Optional: Add a short description of the proxy.

When using domains in the username, avoid the backslash by using %5C instead.

3. Management Interface

The table in this section displays the management interface and its configuration. The button in the last column allows you to change the settings of the management interface.

The settings screen contains the following elements:

Field Description
DHCP Client Select this checkbox if you want to enable DHCP and assign dynamic IP addresses to the management interface.
Address Only available if DHCP is disabled: Enter the static IP address of the management interface in CIDR notation.
Gateway Only available if DHCP is disabled: Enter the gateway of the management interface.
DNS Addresses Only available if DHCP is disabled: Enter the IP addresses of the domain name servers that resolve host and domain name requests. The IP addresses have to be separated by commas.

If you change the IP address of the management interface, the web interface will no longer respond at the previous address. To access the web interface after changing the IP address of the management interface, open a new browser tab and enter the new IP address in the address bar.

The buttons at the bottom of the screen allow you to store your changes (SAVE) or to discard them (CANCEL).
