Configure proxy server settings for Search in SharePoint Server 2013

 

Applies to: SharePoint Server 2013, SharePoint Foundation 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2014-03-10

Summary: Specify a proxy server to send requests to crawl content or query federated content repositories.

A farm administrator or Search service application administrator can specify proxy server settings for sending HTTP requests to crawl content or query federated content repositories. A proxy server is a computer that functions as an intermediary to forward a client request to another server and return the results to the client. Using a proxy server can help increase intranet security and can help improve response times for client search requests.

NoteNote:
Regarding accessibility: SharePoint supports the accessibility features of common browsers to help you administer deployments and access sites. For more information, see Accessibility for SharePoint 2013.
