Has anyone had any experience using the GEP through a firewall?
I'm having difficulty using a Proxy URL for an https-in type input.
For GEP 10.2.2, proxy can be configured by editing the file <GEP_Installation>\etc\com.ges.httpclient.cfg, e.g.
#Set value to <host>:<port>
You will need to stop and restart GeoEvent Processor service in Windows Service Manager for the setting to become effective. Please note this proxy is for the HTTP-based transport for the entire GEP.
Thanks, we decided to build our own proxy and point the GEP input to that.
However, looking in the above directory I can find "com.ges.httpclient.cfg". I was hoping to increase the time-out value for http request and imagine this would be the place to do so - is this a correct assumption?
With the "com.ges.httpclient.cfg" file is this an add-in or have we done something wrong with the install?
Edit to above, should read:
However, looking in the above directory I can't find "com.ges.httpclient.cfg".
Are you using GeoEvent 10.2.2? In prior versions, that config file was not there.
Unfortunately, timeouts aren't modifiable in this config file. All of our Http Connections have a timeout of 30 seconds as we try to stay as close to real-time as possible.
We are using 10.2.1. What is the default http input time out for this version? From testing it appears to be only around 2-3 seconds.
Please go through tech-support to create an issue so that we can get to the bottom of this.
