    InfoCollect V138 or later supports the proxy service. The requirements on the proxy server are as follows:

    • The proxy server must be a Linux host. The Red Hat and SUSE OSs are preferred.
    • The SSH server of the proxy server must be configured as follows to enable the forwarding function and enable the forwarding port externally.
      • Enable AllowTcpForwarding.
      • Enable GatewayPorts.

    To use the proxy, click SSH Proxy in the upper right corner. In the dialog box shown in Figure 3-4, select SSH Proxy, and set the parameters.

    Figure 3-4 SSH Proxy

    The parameters are described as follows:

    • SSH Proxy IP: specifies the IP address of the proxy server.
    • Server Port: specifies the port number. The default value is 22.
    • User Name: specifies the user name.
    • Password: specifies the password.
