Burp can use an upstream proxy server. You would set up your browser to use your burp instance (usually localhost:8080), and in Burp's options, you can set your company's proxy server (say: proxy.company.com:8080). All traffic will pass through your company's server, after it has been handled using Burp.

Burp Upstream Proxy Settings

To help auditing both internal (intranet) and external web applications, you can set conditional proxy servers

  • Yeah !! It's okay. Do I need to change my browser connection settings? or will this upstream proxy settings take care of everything? Then I do know only my local IP. How do I find destination address and port to use?

  • If your browser is setup to use a proxy (could be pushed by active directory), then normally it are those values.

  • Still Burp suite is not working. what port & destination address do i need to give in upstream proxy settings? I am totally confused.Actually My system is connected with Local Area Network with ip address In mozilla firefox, I can able to browse sites if "Auto-detect Proxy settings for this Network" is selected while other options failed.

  • Your browser probably uses the web proxy autodiscovery protocol. You can try to get the PAC file yourself, and set the proxy address. Alternatively, call your internal helpdesk for the proxy address (say you can't surf), or try to ping proxy.<domain-name>.

In Burp under 'User Options' you have 'Upstream Proxy Server' you'll need to add your proxy details here

Upstream Proxy Server

Now, in your browser you'll have to set proxy as also same should be set in your proxy listener under proxy tab in Burp

Proxy Listener
