Configuration for Network Shell proxy server traffic
When using the custom command NSH Here, some configuration is necessary to ensure that Network Shell traffic is routed through a Network Shell proxy server.
For details on the required configuration, see Setting up a Network Shell client to run in proxy mode.
After you perform configuration needed for Network Shell traffic, the NSH Here custom command authenticates to the Network Shell proxy server using the credential that the system generates when you log on to the console.
If you configure a Network Shell client to run in proxy mode and you plan to use Network Shell on the same machine where the console is installed, you must specify an authentication profile. Network Shell needs an authentication profile to access the Network Shell proxy server. You can use the secure file to specify an authentication profile. For more information, see Configuring the secure file. You can also use an environment variable to specify an authentication profile. For more information, see Environment variables.
