Proxy Settings
#1
We want to use the netPI in a network that uses proxy to connect to the internet.
Unfortunately I can't see any options where I can set the proxy settings.
Is there any way to setup the proxy connection?

Kind regards
Julian

Hello Julian,

the current netPI's web GUI does not offer any general proxy settings.

But please explain me a little closer what your application exactly is.

I know the proxy function normally under conditions where a routing of HTTPS, HTTP or FTP services across a proxy is necessary. Is this the same idea you have in mind?

Thx

Yes, that's pretty much what we want to do in our company network.

Well then this can be a solution for you: https://docs.docker.com/network/proxy/

Since netPI applications are coming all containerized you can hand over the parameters HTTP(S)_PROXY as enviroment variables to a container. Then applications like a web browser in a container use this proxy path to get connection to the destination device.

I don't know a working proxy server on the internet ... maybe you know one ... and I can try if this proxy mechanism works.

The problem is that we can't pull images from DockerHub without proxy settings. 
So the only way to deploy a container is to upload it manually from 'remote access'.
And I think that isn't the best solution, especially if you want to update the containers regularly.

We need the ability to establish the proxy connection within the netPI environment and not within the container.

Thanks,
Julian

Hello Julian,

got your problem. Right now there is no possibility for you to configure any proxy server settings to pull images over proxies like described here: https://docs.docker.com/config/daemon/sy...ttps-proxy

There are no possibilities to reconfigure those environment variables on the Linux host right now for you. I gonna discuss this topic in the next developer meeting and ask for an implementation. Right now I don't see a solution within the next months.

Thx

Hello,

is there any development on this subject? It was already mentioned in this thread as well: https://forum.hilscher.com/Thread-Proxy-...ight=proxy

We have exactly the same issue. It seems that the only solution for this is installing an generic operating system (thus losing all security measures taken by Hilscher) or changing to a less secure network (not applicable in production).
Is there a reason that this is so complicated to implement?

Another consideration would be if the SSH access we get with hilschernetpi/netpi-bluetooth would enable us to use linux commands to set the proxy in the system? Or his this SSH access only to a restricted environment?


Thanks
Harry

Hello Harry,

indeed we have been working on the proxy function to integrate it in the netPIs control panel. I have already have seen a beta software running. The test of the overall software package is currently ongoing and the software team scheduled a release for end of march 2020.

Using SSH is not possible at all with netPI. netPI's OS in combination with Docker is limiting this access to any Linux host environment. The SSH in a container like the bluetooth container you are referencing allows SSH accesses in the container only, not in the host.

Thx
