Inserting Internet browsers

You can insert an Internet browser into a .notebook page. In the Internet browser, you can browse to and display web pages. You can modify the Internet browser like any other object in SMART Notebook software (see Working with objects).


When you resize an Internet browser, the Internet browser’s content scales automatically so that you always see the entire web page that you are viewing.

Configuring proxy servers

Internet browsers in SMART Notebook software work with any proxy server that adheres to the RFC 2068 HTTP standard. If your system administrator installed SMART Notebook software behind a proxy server, he or she must create access policy rules for inbound and outbound traffic on that proxy server. Your system administrator can further enhance network security by enabling authentication, such as basic or NT LAN Manager (NTLM) authentication.


Although proxy servers protect internal networks from intruders, they unavoidably introduce network latency.
