Fog Client and Proxy Problems



  • Hi all,

    I work in a school and have implemented fog with great success. Although we have just been told by our internet provider that our fog server is sending data to the proxy server. The proxy server has had over 500,000 hits witin a couple of days.

    It looks like the client is sending data out to the proxy and then being redirected back into our network causing issues with our internet connection.

    What i want to know is, are there any proxy bypass information that i need to add to the client to stop it looking for the fog server through the internet and just within our network.

    Failing that is there anything else i can that would point the client service directly to our fog server without it looking for it through the internet.

    Any help would be gratefully recieved

  • Another quick question -

    I have found the following in the management console - FOG_PROXY_IP and FOG_PROXY_PORT. Are these settings just for the server or will they filter down to the client aswell?



  • Thanks for the help. I have removed the lines in the FOG management for the proxy. Hopefully this will stop any issues we are having.

    If there is anything client side that you or anyone else can think of that would be great.

    You can define the server ip that the FOG client looks for as well as set the proxy that it uses under the FOG settings page inside FOG management itself. So you could set the IP it looks for directly to the server IP, and make sure that you remove the proxy lines if you added them during installation?

    I also work for a school. Our district has a server already set up downtown. I have one server at my building that has both an outside facing and inward facing interface with dhcpd configured only to hand out leases on the internal (192.168) interface so that my server doesn’t conflict with the one downtown nor hand out bad IPs that have no outside internet connectivity.

    The most recent server I set up is stand alone and is on a rolling cart for going to labs and using the switching equipment already in the individual labs to do those together. I probably only use like 25% of FOG’s features but I’ve found it to be very useful.
