Proxy Access

Transend requires an internet connection for license verification. If your network uses a proxy server then you may need to use the Proxy Server for internet access required setting found in Advanced Options > General Options.

Review the following table and examples if you need to enter more proxy information, and read the Firewall section (below) in case you need to open up your firewall to allow license key validation.

Proxy < parameter >
The parameter consists of one or more field names, followed by the equal sign, followed by a value. Each field name/value is terminated with a semicolon.

The field names are:

Host – Server name or IP address of proxy server (required)
Port – Port number. Omit this if the default 8080 is used
Protocol – Socks4 or Socks5. Omit this if neither is used
User – User name, if required
Password – Password, if required

If you use the Proxy Advanced Option but you still have problems connecting to the licensing server, look inside the Transend Migration Console log file directory for a file called response.html. Open up the file and review the contents. This file will be created when there is a failure connecting to the proxy server, and it is useful in troubleshooting the connection.

Ensure your firewall allows access to the following three (3) web sites. Otherwise, your license key verification may not work:


Many firewalls and intrusion filters will still block the license key verification. You may need to contact your network security Administrator if this happens. Ask them to trace the connection, and to allow Traffic between the previously mentioned web locations and the workstation performing the migration.
