|Client credential forwarding||
If you selected the Disabled option, this is the user name and password used. If you selected Username only, you only need to enter the password. If you selected Username and password, you can leave both blank.
|Load balance ratio||Values are relative. For example, if one upstream proxy has the value of 2 and another upstream proxy has the value of 1 and both use the round robin load balancing method, then the proxy with value of 2 will receive twice as many web requests as the proxy with value of 1.|
