You can manage the appliances that are permitted to connect to proxies from the Windows Proxy Manager. To enable communication between a Windows proxy and a known appliance, the proxy must have the certificate of the appliance. You can request the certificate from the add appliance dialog, or the appliance will automatically transfer its certificate for approval.

If you do not want to permit an appliance to connect to the Windows proxy, you must delete it from the Known Appliances. However, appliances periodically ping the proxies they are configured to use. Therefore, unless the specific appliance has been reconfigured to stop trying to use the Windows proxy, the Pending Approval entry reappears. In the Proxy Manager, the unknown appliances that have contacted the Windows proxy are listed in orange with a status of Pending Approval.
