Enabling Loopback for App Containers

Windows 10 uses an isolation technology ("AppContainer") to block applications from communicating with localhost. As the Rawstream agent runs as a local web proxy listening on app containers including Edge, Microsoft Office and others need to be exempted from the loopback isolation.

Install the Rawstream Endpoint Service to automatically set the loopback exemptions on a machine.

Other Deployment Considerations

By default the agent sets the system proxy settings to point to itself. You can configure the agent to serve a PAC script.
