You can configure Team Foundation (TFS) version control to use a proxy server, which caches copies of version control files in the location of a distributed team. Using a proxy server can significantly reduce bandwidth requirements for remote developers.

You can access a TFS proxy from a Microsoft Dynamics AX client by updating the registry through Visual Studio or by setting an environment variable.

To update the registry through Visual Studio

  1. Follow the procedure at Configure Team Foundation Version Control to use Proxy Server.

  2. Connect Microsoft Dynamics AX by using the same parameters you would for a physical server. For more information, see How to: Set Up Local Version Control Parameters (Developer).

To set an environment variable

  1. Open the System Properties window. For example, in Windows Server 2008, click Control Panel > System and Security > System > Advanced system settings.

  2. Click Environment Variables.

  3. Click New… to create a new system variable.

  4. In Variable name, type TFSPROXY.

  5. In Variable value, type the URL of the proxy.

  6. Connect Microsoft Dynamics AX by using the same parameters you would for a physical server. For more information, see How to: Set Up Local Version Control Parameters (Developer).
