SSH Tectia

Proxy Rules

On the Proxy Rules page, you can define rules for HTTP or SOCKS proxy servers that SSH Tectia Server uses when a client requests local port forwarding (local tunnel) to a third host.

    For other types than direct, enter the proxy Server address and Port.

    Select also whether the proxy rules applies to Any connection or only to connections to the specified Network. In the Network field, you can enter one or more conditions delimited by commas (,). The conditions can specify IP addresses or DNS names.

    The IP address/port conditions have an address pattern and an optional port range (ip_pattern[:port_range]).

    The ip_pattern may have one of the following forms:

    • a single IP address x.x.x.x

    • an IP address range of the form x.x.x.x-y.y.y.y

    • an IP sub-network mask of the form x.x.x.x/y

    The DNS name conditions consist of a hostname which may be a regular expression containing the characters "*" and "?" and a port range (name_pattern[:port_range]).

    Click OK.

To edit a proxy rule, select a rule from the list and click Edit.

To delete a proxy rule, select a rule from the list and click Delete.

The rules are read from top down. Use the Up and Down buttons to change the order of the rules.
