Proxy Server Credentials setting for Internet Access RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a local authenticated proxy server in my environment which is not on the local domain. It is a standalone proxy server and had specific login credentials.

    When I try to access internet on internet explorer, I am prompted to enter proxy server login details. Also when i execute "invoke-webrequest" command on powershell, i get the error. Details below:


    Invoke-WebRequest -uri
    Invoke-WebRequest :
    Access Denied (authentication_failed)
    Your credentials could not be authenticated: "Credentials are missing.". You will not be permitted access until your
    credentials can be verified.
    This is typically caused by an incorrect username and/or password, but could also be caused by network problems.
    For assistance, contact your network support team.
    At line:1 char:1
    + Invoke-WebRequest -uri
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (System.Net.HttpWebRequest:HttpWebRequest) [Invoke-WebRequest], WebExc
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : WebCmdletWebResponseException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.InvokeWebRequestCommand


    How can i store the standalone proxy server credentials in common location, so that I am not prompted to enter credentials on any application (Internet explorer or outlook or powershell) when accessing internet.

  • give us more details , how local credentials will be authenticate with proxy , you should have some centralized credentials like AD or something for Single sign on.

  • Hello Balal,

    The authentication is not based on AD/single sign-on. The credentials are local to the proxy server.

    So when we open browser and it asks for credentials, we use ./<username>

  • That Why i am saying if you have AD, use AD Authentication you will have Single Sign on , Like not prompt for Id/Password 

    if you dont want to do that save credentials in "Credential Manager" for said proxy server so it will not as u again and again ,
