Proxy server settings for Cloud Backup

The Cloud Backup Agent is used to conveniently create backups and is installed on the devices you want to back up.

The backup agent installation requires an internet connection and is able to transfer data through an HTTP proxy server. If a proxy server is configured in Windows, through Internet Options found in Control Panel, the setup program reads the proxy server settings from the registry and uses them automatically. However, in Linux and OS X, you must specify the proxy server settings before the installation.

  1. Create the file name /etc/Acronis/Global.config and open it in a text editor.
  2. Copy and paste the following lines into the created file:
  3. 
        <?xml version="1.0" ?>
        <registry name="Global">
            <key name="HttpProxy">
                <value name="Enabled" type="Tdword">"1"</value>
                <value name="Host" type="TString">"proxy.company.com"</value>
                <value name="Port" type="Tdword">"443"</value>
            </key>
        </registry>
        
  4. Replace the following details and save the file:
    • proxy.company.com – replace this with your proxy server host name/IP address
    • 443 – replace this with the decimal value of the port number
  5. If the Cloud Backup Agent is not installed yet, you can now install it. Otherwise, restart the backup agent by executing the following command in any directory:
