Browser proxy configuration for FirefoxΒΆ


Keep in mind that using the proxy will only work while you have access to the workernode for which the SSH tunnel was set up, i.e. while the HOD cluster is running, and while you are able to connect to the HPC infrastructure.

To reset your browser configuration back to normal, simply disable the proxy in your browser configuration.

  1. Navigate to the Advanced tab of the Preferences window of Firefox, and click Settings in the Connection section
  1. Select Manual proxy configuration, enter localhost as SOCKS Host, and enter the port number you used when setting up the SSH tunnel.

    Make sure that the No Proxy for: box is empty (in particular, localhost should not be listed there).

    Click OK to save the configuration.
