Using a proxy server when connecting to a cloud license server

Hi,

How do we (is it possible to) configure our application - which is a desktop application - to use a local proxy server when communicating with an FNO cloud license server?

Our application is a Java application and we use a combination of the licensing web services (e.g. we use the health and features end points) and capability request.

Examples

For features end point we use:

https://example.compliance.flexnetoperations.com/api/1.0/instances/PPPPPPPPPP/features

For health end point we use:

https://example.compliance.flexnetoperations.com/api/1.0/instances/PPPPPPPPPP/health

For submitting a capability request we use:

https://example.compliance.flexnetoperations.com/instances/PPPPPPPPPP/request

We use FNO cloud instance.

 

Thanks.

Hi @ageorge ,

In the JavaXT User Guide there is mention of configuring the capabilityrequest example to use a proxy server:

For the REST APIs I'd imagine the proxy server would need to be configured to forward to the requests to the appropriate endpoint on a given port.

Thanks,

Hi @jberthold ,

Thanks for the response.

I saw the entry in the JavaXT and it says "proxy server (which has been set up to communicate with the back-office server)".

In that case, will the set up to communicate with the back-office server be any different from the configuration you imagine needs to be done on the proxy server for the REST APIs?

Hi @ageorge ,

Sorry but I don't have any experience configuring proxy servers so I don't know for sure ...

Thx,

Jim

Yes, it is possible to configure your desktop application to use a local proxy server when communicating with the FNO cloud license server. The steps to do this will depend on the type of proxy server you're using. Generally, you'll need to provide your proxy server's IP address, port number, and authentication credentials to your application. For example, I am using the proxies from https://soax.com/online-facebook-messenger-proxy that works for me. Once configured, your application should be able to communicate with the FNO cloud license server via the proxy server.
