How do I add a proxy exception for Webex?

How do I connect to a Webex meeting through my proxy?


To create a proxy exception:


  1. Do one of the following:
  • On Windows 7: Type Internet Options in the Search programs and files or Start Search field, then press Enter.
  • On Windows 10: Type Internet Options in the Type here to search field on the taskbar, then press Enter.
  1. Click on the Connections tab.
  2. Click the LAN Settings button.
  3. Under Proxy Server, click on the Advanced button to bring up the Proxy Settings box.
  4. Under Exceptions enter *.Webex.com.
    • Note: If you already see other entries, add a semicolon after the last entry and then enter the Webex exception.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Click Apply or OK to close out of Internet Options.
  7. Restart all the browsers.
  1. Open Safari.
  2. Under the Safari menu (located at top navigation), go to Preferences.
  3. Click the Advanced tab.
  4. Next to Proxies, click the Change Settings button.
  5. Enter *.Webex.com in the Bypass proxy settings for these Hosts & Domains: field, then click OK
On Linux, you can define HTTP proxy exceptions via no_proxy environment variable. In the no_proxy variable, you can specify a list of domain names or IP addresses for which HTTP proxy should not be used. Along with domain names or IP addresses, you can also specify port number if necessary. To define the HTTP proxy exceptions system wide on Ubuntu:

$ sudo vi /etc/environment
  • http_proxy="http://proxy.com:8000"
  • no_proxy="*.Webex.com"
The above example means that if you are reaching local host (Example: *.Webex.com), you will not use HTTP proxy. For all other destinations, you will use the designated HTTP proxy (proxy.com:8000).
