openerp and proxy connection

on 9/22/14, 8:49 AM 1,150 views


I have my openerp installed on a server. I activated the automatic download of currencies through the app currency_rate_update. The app needs to connect to the internet to download the currencies, and therefore I need to activate a proxy mode for that, as exterior connections are not allowed by default on the server for security reasons.

Any ideas on how to do that?

Thanks for help

You probably just disable inward traffic to your server. It doesn't mean that your server can't reach port 80 and 443. How did you do an install if you have no internet access?

I think this is not odoo problem. What it means with proxy_mode option is to tell that odoo server will run behind reverse proxy. If you still want to use it, the odoo service should be in machine that allows outgoing connection.

Aside from that, if you really want to make outgoing connection in your server, you can setup a proxy and make connection through that proxy. In unix-like environment there is variable called http_proxy which can be useful.
