Is it possible to configure a proxy just to allow one application to access the Internet on IGEL OS?


Hello, please, is it possible to configure a proxy just to allow an application (#ZOOM) to access the Internet? By default, according to our security policy, thin terminals must not have access to the Internet globally.


Hello Claude, not an application for the moment, only ports/addresses.

But you could use a Proxy with whitelisting (instead of whitelisting and set it system-widely:

support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362683-Network-Firewall-or-Proxy-Server-Settings-for-Zoom?mobile_site=true

kb.igel.com/igelos-11.03.500/en/proxy-27247296.html

or work with a hostfile (huge effort in my opinion):

kb.igel.com/igelos-11.03.500/en/hosts-27247286.html


If you only want Zoom use a proxy you could add a few environment variables into the commandline which starts zoom.

This is enough for my zoom to use a proxy:

(needs to be one line)

`http_proxy=http://your.proxy:8080 zoom`


Thanks Jo
