Proxy Configuration

If you use XiVO behind an HTTP proxy, you must do a couple of manipulations for it to work correctly.

Warning

We do not recomend to use http_proxy environment variable. It may break some services. Instead you should configure the proxy on a per service basis as described below.

System Applications

Installation and upgrade operations use different tools for which the proxy must be configured if any.

apt

Important

This is needed because apt is used for installation and upgrade

Create the /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/90proxy file with the following content:

Acquire::http::Proxy "http://domain\username:[email protected]:proxyport";

curl

Important

This is needed because curl is used during installation and upgrade

Create the ~/.curlrc file with the following content:

proxy = http://proxyip:proxyport
proxy-user = "username:password"

docker

Important

This is needed because docker images will be downloaded during installation or upgrade

When upgrading or installing XiVO it will attempt to download docker images. For the proxy configuration, you need to create a systemd configuration file. See Docker documentation: https://docs.docker.com/config/daemon/systemd/#httphttps-proxy

wget

Important

This step is needed because this tool is used by xivo-upgrade script and install scripts

Create the ~/.wgetrc file with the following content:

use_proxy=yes
http_proxy=http://username:password@proxyip:proxyport

XiVO Services

Several XiVO services needs also the proxy to be configured, if any.

dhcp-update

Important

This is needed if you use the DHCP server of the XiVO. Otherwise the DHCP configuration won’t be correct. It must be set before the wizard is run.

Proxy information is set via the /etc/xivo/dhcpd-update.conf file.

Edit the file and look for the [proxy] section.

provd

Note

This is needed to download plugins

Proxy information is set via the Configuration ‣ Provisioning ‣ General page.

xivo-fetchfw

Note

This is needed to download firmwares

Proxy information is set via the /etc/xivo/xivo-fetchfw.conf file.

Edit the file and look for the [proxy] section.
