I am running an Icinga2 master in our datacenter and attached about 500 clients that connect from the customers premises to our location (IP <-> IP).
While this works well, I would like to have maximum compatibility to customer networks by setting up nginx proxy_pass in front of the master node (which later will be seperated via satellites) as well as using port 443 instead of 5665. Does this work? Is this supported?
Another problem are HTTP proxys. Even with WinHTTP (netsh proxy) in 32/64 bit and IE, Icinga2 is unable to use a proxy. Somewhere I read that proxys are not supported. This is a problem for my setup because of locations, that don’t allow routing / SNAT but provide a proxy instead.
(Installation of Icinga2 satellite is not on option there either.)
Is it possible to tunnel icinga2 connection through a HTTP proxy just like many applications do?
Comments are welcome!
