Enabling and disabling SOCKS proxy rule evaluation

By default, the BMC Server Automation system evaluates communication requests to remote servers against routing rules to determine if the communication must be routed through a SOCKS proxy server. If your system does not use SOCKS proxy servers to route to remote servers, you can disable routing rule evaluation.

  1. Start the Application Server Administration console, as described in Starting the Application Server Administration console.
  2. To enable or disable routing rule evaluation, enter the following:
    set RoutingConfig EvaluateSocksProxyRules true|false
    true — Turns on routing rule evaluation. The system evaluates communication requests against routing rules. By default, routing rule evaluation is turned on.
    false — Turns off routing rule evaluation. The system does not evaluate communication requests against routing rules.
  3. Restart the Application Server.

For information about setting up communications to remote servers through SOCKS proxy servers, see Setting up communications with remote servers.
