The Conduit service runs on each Scanner. Through the Conduit, you can register your licenses, update antispam filters, download new virus definitions, and perform software updates. If you use a proxy host, you must add the proxy server information to your Scanner definition.
Proxy errors are logged to BrightmailLog.log at the warning log level. Before you configure proxy access, you may want to configure BrightmailLog.log to log warning-level errors with the command cc-config cclog --level warnings. If the proxy host does not function after you configure it, check BrightmailLog.log for the errors described in Table: Potential proxy host errors.
