Connection via Proxy Server

Setting proxy for Gilly

With release 2.1, Gilly now supports connectivity via a http proxy for handling situations where your Confluence installation is behind the firewall and outward connectivity is available only using a proxy host/port. To use this capability, all you need is to add the proxy host and port in Java system properties using the normal manner (add -Dhttp.proxyHost=yourproxyhost  -Dhttp.proxyPort=proxyport in JAVA_OPTS in while you start Confluence.


JAVA_OPTS="-Dhttp.proxyHost=localhost -Dhttp.proxyPort=80"

With release 2.7, Gilly now supports connectivity via authenticated http proxy. To specify the proxy username and proxy password specify http.proxyUser and http.proxyPassword parameters in the Java command line options while starting confluence. E.g. you can enter this line in the

JAVA_OPTS="-Dhttp.proxyHost=localhost -Dhttp.proxyPort=80 -Dhttp.proxyUser=puser -Dhttp.proxyPassword=password"



The next step is to enable proxy in Gilly configuration page
