Options Connection screen

The Options Connection screen allows you to configure the ZAP connection options:

Timeout in seconds

This makes is easier to test slow applications.

Default User Agent

The user agent that ZAP should use when creating HTTP messages (for example, spider messages or CONNECT requests to outgoing proxy).

Single Cookie Request Header

Controls whether the ZAP's managed cookies (Enable Session Tracking (Cookie)) should be set on a single "Cookie" request header or multiple "Cookie" request headers, when sending an HTTP request to the server.


TTL Successful Queries

Defines for how long the successful DNS queries should be cached:

  • Negative number, cache forever;
  • Zero, disables caching;
  • Positive number, the number of seconds the queries will be cached.

Note: Changes are applied after a restart.

The option can also be set using the -config command line argument with the key connection.dnsTtlSuccessfulQueries.

Security Protocols

Allows to choose the SSL/TLS versions enabled for outgoing connections (for example, to servers). At least one version must be enabled, versions unsupported by the JRE will be unselected and disabled. The option SSLv2Hello must be selected in conjunction with at least one SSL/TLS version.

Use Proxy chain

This section allows you to connect to another proxy for outgoing connections. This is often required in a corporate environment.

Proxy authentication

This section allows you to configure the outgoing proxy authentication.
