Vault client behind firewall

Post by Ding » Wed Feb 11, 2004 4:03 pm

Is it possible to get Vault client to work from behind firewall (port 8080). It does not have a GUI to set proxy server - is there a registry that can be changed to achieve this?

Proxies and Vault

Post by jeremy_sg » Wed Feb 11, 2004 4:53 pm


In Vault 1.2, the answer is "maybe". In Vault 2.0, the answer is "yes".

In both Vault 1.2 and 2.0, the Vault Client will respect a manual proxy setting in Internet Options -> Connections -> Lan Settings, provided that the proxy is specified by checking the "Use a proxy server for your LAN" and the server's address and port are specifed there.

Neither 1.2 nor 2.0 will support automatic proxy detection, because the .Net Framework doesn't currently support it.

Vault 2.0 will have the capability to prompt for proxy authentication, but 1.2 does not have that capability.

If you cannot set your proxy settings in the Internet Options dialog, then you can override the proxy settings in your machine.config file, in both Vault 1.2 and 2.0. Vault 2.0 will also support overriding the proxy setting in a Vault specific config file.


that worked!

Thanks! Using IE's proxy setting works!
