[ Problem ]
One for the UI guys.
SAP want to use https RSS feeds in Share, we know that we can handle these OK since
ALF-2104 however their VPN does not allow https (they are behind the VPN and the Internet connection goes via proxy). When trying to set up an RSS feed with https int he URl they get an error 498 returned. Further investigation has shown that 498 seems to be custom HTTP code of RemoteClient class from Surf framework:
I'm looking for some way to allow the customer to set up a configuration option to define proxy settings for "http" connector:
var connector = remote.connect("http");
- but for https connections.
There's code in RemoteClient.java which sets proxy parameters to Apache HTTP client, but unfortunately no mention where this can be defined in documentation.
Not fully understanding what is going on behind the scenes here but if it's possible to set the feed so that https uses a proxy please let me know or give back any thoughts you might have.
