The following article describes how to change the proxy configuration for the Alert Logic® agent.
If you change the location of your proxy server or replace your proxy server with a new one, this procedure should be used to verify the agent is pointed to the new proxy server.
Run the following command to specify the proxy IP or host:
/etc/init.d/al-agent configure --proxy <PROXYIP/PROXYHOST>
Note: For CentOS and RedHat versions 7.x and newer, replace "/etc/init.d/al-agent" with "service al-agent.
You must re-install the agent and specify the proxy setting on the AL Agent Setup window during this process. The procedure for installing the agent is available at: Install the agent via the GUI.
When performing the setup on the AL Agent Setup window, perform the following steps to update the proxy setting.
- In Proxy Setting, select WinHTTP Default.
This entry replaces the contents of the field with "1".
- In Proxy Setting, enter your proxy IP or host name.
