our web 1.0 application is going to be hosted in a datacenter behind a proxy.
I do not mean a reverse-proxy which matches the traffic from outside to application and back.
The old HTTPSocket had a functionality for setting up a proxy URL. The new URLConnection Class doesn’t seems to have this.
My question: how can we access foreign webservices if the app is located behind a proxy?
Thank you for the help!
maybe someone from the Xojo-staff?
URLConnection uses the system proxy settings.
Allright, thanks for the reply.
We run our application containerized in a kubernetes cluster. The system is then a Linux container. If we set the Environment Variables, this should work, doesn’t it?
Which Library do you use in the URLConnection class on Linux?
That should probably be LibSoup 2.4-1
I have to come back to this.
We’ve set up the proxy, it is working fine:
env | grep -i proxy
telling me the right proxy setting
gives me the content of the page.
BUT, our Web-Application, which only uses the class URLConnection, is not able to load the data and times out.
What else can we do?
This is the Error-Message we get from within the try-catch:
Could not connect: Socket I/O timed out
@Greg_O_Lone what do we miss? How can we tell the
URLConnection to use the system proxy?
To clearify the case:
this proxy only works through an internal domain and without a password or username.
Here’s an old thread, which were unsolved with the same topic:
