Subject Re: Using the Proxy Server to record test scripts
Date Thu, 02 Sep 2004 13:49:26 GMT
I assume you know that you can tell the proxy server what port to listen on
("Port:", on the proxy server panel), and that you have to tell IE to go to
that port, but if you're asking how to get the jmeter proxy to send requests
through another proxy (your firewall) - You Can't.  In other words, the
jmeter proxy must be the only proxy being used.  It wouldn't be too hard to
modify the jmeter proxy server do this (tunnel to another proxy), but since
the only reason to do this is for demonstration purposes (unless you're load
testing your proxy!), I doubt anyone has a burning need for it.  Actually
there is at least one other case where it might be useful - to capture
behind a firewall and be able to play back inside or outside the firewall -
but that's a pretty specific case and requires a lot of code.  We'd have to
modify the proxy to tunnel to another proxy - that's pretty easy, don't even
have to change the request, just open a connection to the proxy and send the
the original request (after modifying one or two header entries, IIRC).  But
getting the playback code to support going through a proxy would be quite a
bit more work.
