Configuring SOS to work with a Proxy

Post by lbauer » Thu Feb 19, 2004 3:20 pm

SourceOffSite can work from behind a proxy server. However, there is
no direct support for firewalls/proxy servers in SourceOffSite.

The SOS Server simply listens on a port for incoming connections. We
allow traffic on the configured port to pass through the firewall, as you
may already allow for http, etc. We do have many customers who use
proxy servers such as Microsoft Proxy Server, but configuration is done
outside of the SourceOffSite product.

The proxy server must be configured to accept the CONNECT method,
and must not be configured to use authentication. SOS does not support any proxy authentication.
