System ProxyΒΆ

Some IT environments require the use of a proxy to connect to the Internet. The option allowes to set a HTTP proxy and if necessary, supports basic auth.

The code example below sets a proxy for all HTTP, HTTPS and FTP (anonymous ftp) connections, initiated by vyos.

set system proxy url
set system proxy port 8080

That enables the update of a system image if the vyos system operates behind a proxy.

vyos@vyos:~$ add system image
