Connecting to Foldr

To connect to Foldr using one of our apps please use the following details:

iOS & Android App

Desktop Browser

Mobile Browser (automatic redirect)

Windows drive mapping / WebDAV clients

NOTE – If you use a ‘manual’ HTTP proxy on iOS devices inside your organisation, you will need to consider migrating to using an Auto Proxy instead to enable clients to access the appliance directly over the LAN whilst sending all other traffic to the upstream proxy.

The Foldr appliance is supplied with two Proxy Auto Configuration (PAC) templates and can supplies these over HTTP to allow you to deploy proxy settings your devices; these are available within Foldr Settings >> Proxy PAC.  Three values need to be adjusted to your local environment as highlighted in bold below.

Sample Proxy PAC Template


Foldr PAC file template

This is a basic PAC file template.
Be sure to amend it for your network before enabling it.

function FindProxyForURL(url, host) {


If the hostname matches, send direct.

Change “INTERNAL-FQDN” to your internal domain name.

To check for multiple domains use:-
if (dnsDomainIs(host, “INTERNAL-FQDN-01”) || dnsDomainIs(host, “INTERNAL-FQDN-02”)) return “DIRECT”;


if (dnsDomainIs(host, “INTERNAL-FQDN“)) return “DIRECT”;


If the requested website is hosted within the internal networks below, send direct.

Change “” to your internal IP range and “” to your internal subnet mask.

To add additional subnets:-

if (isPlainHostName(host) ||
isInNet(dnsResolve(host), “”, “”) ||
isInNet(dnsResolve(host), “”, “”) ||
isInNet(dnsResolve(host), “”, “”) ||
isInNet(dnsResolve(host), “”, “”)) return “DIRECT”;


if (isPlainHostName(host) ||
isInNet(dnsResolve(host), ““, “”) ||
isInNet(dnsResolve(host), “”, “”)) return “DIRECT”;


DEFAULT RULE: All other traffic, use the upstream proxy. Change UPSTREAM-PROXY and PORT as appropriate.

return “proxy UPSTREAM-PROXY:PORT“;


Deploying the PAC template to your devices

Once you have made the changes and saved the template you can change your iOS device HTTP Proxy (under Settings >> Wifi >> SSID Name) to AUTO and enter the proxy address as shown on the Proxy PAC screen. Please note that these are available over HTTP not HTTPS and that each PAC template uses a different port, should you wish to deploy two different proxy configurations.
