New updating proxy servers
This setting determines whether connections to the Internet (for database and program updates) will use a proxy server in conjunction with that access. The first is to funnel all communications to and from the outside world through a single connection point, thus assuring anonymity of all computers on the corporate network. This means that any external content which had recently been requested by any user could be saved locally for some period of time, then subsequent requests by that user (or others) could use the recently-saved data.
In a home environment, only advanced users utilize proxy servers, and then on a limited basis. This method often conserves significant bandwidth, resulting in lower operating costs for companies that use this strategy.

If a proxy is in use, the name and port number must be specified by the person who controls access to the proxy server.
Ask your network administrator to allow the following server addresses on your DNS and proxy servers.
Cloud connection point - This site system role connects to the Configuration Manager cloud service to download version updates for Configuration Manager and uses a proxy server that's configured on the computer that hosts the service connection point.
Exchange Server connector - This site system role connects to an Exchange Server and uses a proxy server configuration on the computer that hosts the Exchange Server connector.
You may specify if you will be notified if your rules database is out of date, and if so, how many days late it may be before you are notified.
The date range is adjustable between one (1) and twenty-eight (28) days.
