Subject [jira] Commented: (SYNAPSE-481) Outbound proxy server settings do not appear to be working
Date Thu, 12 Mar 2009 12:32:51 GMT


Oleg Kalnichevski commented on SYNAPSE-481:


While simple (plain) HTTP request proxying should be absolutely trivial ti implement, HTTPS
connection tunneling could be a _major_ undertaking. If you intend to support HTTPS tunneling
at some point as well, we should probably consider starting a project to build an async version
of HttpClient out of HC, so other people could potentially contribute to that effort. It will
not be an easy task.

> The outbound proxy server settings, outline in this document -,
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.
