IceWS and proxy traversal

istvanistvan Member Istvan BukiOrganization: FedexProject: just experimenting
Hello,

I saw the very interesting IceWS project and was wondering how it handle explicit proxy traversal.
The use case I have in mind is a client running inside a private network where all internet traffic is routed through an explicit proxy. That client need to reach a server running in another network behind haproxy.

I read the IceWs page but did not find any reference to proxy traversal.

Thank you for any information you could provide about this subject.

Regards

Istvan

    Hi,

    If I understand it correctly you would have the following setup:

    client ----> [proxy server]
    > INTERNET
    > [HAProxy server] ----> server

    What kind of proxy server are you using on the client side?

    We currently only support SOCKs proxies but adding support for HTTP proxies is on our TODO list. Aside from this, I don't see any difficulties with supporting this scenario using the IceWS transport.

    Cheers,
    Benoit.

    Hello Benoit,

    yes, this is exactly the setup I have in mind, using an http proxy.
    Any idea when this feature would become available?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    It's on our TODO list for the next release but I can't promise when it will be out. If this is something you need sooner than later, you could consider sponsoring it (and we can send you a patch). Please contact us at [email protected] if you are interested.

    Cheers,
    Benoit.
