Subject [jira] Commented: (SYNAPSE-481) Outbound proxy server settings do not appear to be working
Date Thu, 12 Mar 2009 13:48:51 GMT


Oleg Kalnichevski commented on SYNAPSE-481:


Basically there are two potentially difficult aspects:
(1) ability to upgrade a plain connection to a SSL/TLS secured one. Can be done using core
components only, but some custom code will still be required 
(2) ability to authenticate with the proxy. This automatically entails bringing it almost
half of HttpClient functionality.

do not appear to be working. For example, I tried this setting in the axis2.xml file:
> <axisconfig name="AxisJava2.0">
>      <parameter name="Proxy">
>              <Configuration>
>                       <ProxyHost>localhost</ProxyHost>
>                       <ProxyPort>8888</ProxyPort>
>               </Configuration>
>     </parameter>
> ....other stuff
> </axisconfig> 
> My local outbound proxy that I was testing with, TinyProxy (available with most Linux
distro's) doesn't show any activity (but I've confirmed it's working properly via some other
programs) when I attempt to call a remote endpoint service. I also attempted using the Java
system properties option, but that similarly didn't appear to be work.
> Unfortunately, a lot of companies are now restricting all outbound traffic except through
a proxy, so this can be a significant problem.
