Genetec™ Update Service (GUS) requires an internet connection. However, to reduce the potential impact of a compromised system, it is best if the machine that hosts the Directory role is not the machine accessing the Internet.

What you should know

Any Genetec™ Server on which GUS is configured can act as a proxy for a different GUS within the system.

In this scenario, a proxy is required by the GUS installed on the main server to communicate with the machine that has Internet access.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the System task.
  2. Click the General settings view, and click the Updates page.
  3. Click on the Settings tab.
  4. In the Download and Internet Proxy section, click the edit button ().
  5. In the Configure proxy dialog box, enter the IP address or host name of a valid Internet-enabled machine.
  6. Click Add.
  7. Click Save configuration.
