To safeguard anonymity, the proxy removes certain identifying headers from a request before submitting it to a remote site. However, at times you may need to include the
Authorization header, for example when sending an authenticated request to a website or API over the proxy server.
Use Enable Headers to tell the proxy server to pass the
Authorization header through to the remote site.
- Use IP authentication or the
Proxy-Authorizationheader to authenticate your request to the proxy.
- Configure your browser or client application for the proxy.
Then click on Enable Headers along the right side of your dashboard.
This takes you to the Enable Headers page in ProxyMesh.
- On that page, check the
Authorizationcheckbox so that the header will not be removed.
- Then click the Save Headers button.
Authorization header can be allowed at this time. If there are other headers you would like to enable, please contact Support.
Headers in HTTPS
Because HTTPS requests are encrypted, the proxy server cannot inspect or modify request headers.
That means all of your original request headers are passed through unmodified, and no extra headers are added.
Header management in this case is completely under your control.
Proxy-Authorizationheader. Instead, use IP Authentication.
