WU Proxy Software?

Postby fewdea » Wed Aug 10, 2016 3:23 pm

Hello, I am considering proposing a project at work that would utilize our significant compute resources during non-peak hours for F@H. Unfortunately, there is no possible way that we would allow our compute clusters to be connected to the internet. However, there is a possibility that we could set up a secure proxy server to send and receive WUs.

Does such a project exist? Is this even possible?

Edit: Maybe I'm not terribly smart and a regular http proxy would work just as well? Perhaps a F@H config setting would suffice...

There's no specific solution for this purpose ... just choose the proxy solution that fits best your needs.

Be careful, FAHClient only support basic proxies with basic or digest authentication (client offers host, port, login and password settings). NTLM, SOCKS and SSL/TLS proxies are not supported.
