Setting Tekla Model Sharing to work through a proxy

Question:
I would like to know how to configure TS so that the Model Sharing feature can work through a company’s proxy. There doesn’t seem to be any setting to configure TS so that It can work through a proxy.

Answer:
If all the http(s) communication is routed through a http proxy that requires authentication, the following http proxy related settings must be added to the settings in the TeklaStructures.exe.config file located in the TeklaStructures\<Version>/nt/bin folder.
Note: Set the correct http proxy hostname and port depending on the actual environment.

<?xml version ="1.0"?>
<configuration>
<runtime>
...
</runtime>

<startup>
...
</startup>

<!-- BEGIN HTTP PROXY SETTINGS -->
<system.net>
<defaultProxy enabled="true" useDefaultCredentials="true">
        <proxy proxyaddress="http://DEFINE_IP_ADDRESS_HERE:DEFINE_PORT_HERE" usesystemdefault="False" />
</defaultProxy>
</system.net>
<!-- END HTTP PROXY SETTINGS -->

</configuration>

So you need to change the DEFINE_IP_ADDRESS_HERE:DEFINE_PORT_HERE part with the IP address (or hostname) and port number for example: "http://10.0.0.200:8080"
