Configure PFSense to use a outbound proxy



  • Hi,

    How can i configure the pfsense to use a outbound proxy to access the internet?

    I've one proxy server in the network, and i need config the pfsense to use that proxy. I tried config the proxy address at "System -> Advanced -> Miscellaneous. But not worked.

    What can i try?

    Try to describe "not worked" in the first place.

    Try to describe "not worked" in the first place.

    When i use the shell option, and ping to any address or domain, i receive answer. When i use the web interface, and do diagnostic tests, i also receive answer.

    However, when i try to add packages, i receive the message: "Unable to communicate with https://packages.pfsense.org. Please verify DNS and interface configuration, and that pfSense has functional Internet connectivity."

    Because the tests (ping/DNS) don't use proxy, only the application layer doesn't work, ie, I've connectivity.



  • How are you specifying the proxy URL?



  • @KOM:

    How are you specifying the proxy URL?

    I config the proxy address at "System -> Advanced -> Miscellaneous. In the proxy field i tried the IP address and URL, but don't worked.

    Example:

    Proxy: 172.17.92.253 or http://172.17.92.253
    Port: 2000
    User: test
    Pass: 1234



  • OK I was just checking that you had specified the prefix.
