  1. In the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) select the Clients tab, then select the group you would like to modify the proxy settings for.
  2. Select the Policies  tab on the right hand side.
  3. Under Location-Independent Policies and Settings locate the Settings box.
  4. In the box you will see External Communication Settings
  5. Click on the link and select the Proxy Server tab.
