From Start menu > Configure System > Proxies > Choose a proxy (Central Proxy is the default), then double click on it to see and edit its settings:

Each proxy can have multiple virtual proxies, which are basically access and authentication modes for that proxy. Select Associated Items from the right menu of “edit Proxy” screen:

Click apply to confirm your changes. Once you apply changes, the virtual proxy will be restarted, related sessions will be ended and users will be logged out:
