System ProxyΒΆ

Some IT environments require the use of a proxy to connect to the Internet. The system proxy option sets the configuration for a proxy, and if necessary, supports basic auth.

This example sets a proxy for all connections initiated by VyOS, including HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP (anonymous ftp).

set system proxy url
set system proxy port 8080

# If a username and password are required
set system proxy username vyosuser
set system proxy password vyosuser-password

That enables the update of a system image if the VyOS system operates behind a proxy.
