System Proxy

Some IT environments require the use of a proxy to connect to the Internet. Without this configuration VyOS updates could not be installed directly by using the add system image command (Update VyOS).

set system proxy url <url>
Set proxy for all connections initiated by VyOS, including HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP (anonymous ftp).
set system proxy port <port>
Configure proxy port if it does not listen to the default port 80.
set system proxy username <username>
Some proxys require/support the “basic” HTTP authentication scheme as per RFC 7617, thus a username can be configured.
set system proxy password <password>
Some proxys require/support the “basic” HTTP authentication scheme as per RFC 7617, thus a password can be configured.
