Configuring a BrightSign player to use a proxy

Last Updated: December 3, 2015

You can configure BrightSign players to connect through a proxy server. The proxy server can be set during the player setup process in BrightAuthor (a recent BrightAuthor version is required). If you need to provide a user name and password for the proxy, you can enter it using this format: <user name>:<password>@<proxy server address> (e.g. “”).

 A proxy server can also be set manually using a script.

Tools > Setup A Unit > Advanced Network Setup: Proxy with username and password included

    I'm having an issue where the password contains an @ symbol. The form validation fails. Is there are way around this?

    Also, in the Advances Network Setup image above, should there be a colon between the username and password instead of an @ symbol?

    When I enter a password in the address, I get a "Proxy specification is invalid". I have a XD1032 with up-to-date firmware.

    If the password contains this special character (p@ssword), the @ symbol will break the password string itself.

    To get around this you need to use the ASCII equivalent for @ or %40 .
