Set the HTTP proxy on a virtual Edge with an XML configuration file


You can set the Edge proxy on a virtual Edge using an XML configuration file.

The Edge uses RFC-2817 HTTP CONNECT to establish a TLS connection through a proxy server. HTTP CONNECT allows an HTTP TCP connection to upgrade to HTTPS TLS. This creates an HTTP CONNECT tunnel. 

Notes: 
  • Required authentication is not permitted on the HTTP proxy.
  •  You may need to configure the proxy server with a policy that allows TCP tunneling without HTTPS interception.


 

  1. Navigate to the ininedgeservices.xml file.ininedgeservices-location
  2. In the XML file, add the http address below the <String>general.network.proxy</String>.

For example:

<String>general.network.proxy</String>
 <String/>

changes to 

<String>general.network.proxy</String>
 <String>http://10.1.1.1:8080</String>
Note: The proxy setting required format is an absolute URI. For example, http://10.1.1.1:8080 is a valid address.
