You can configure PingFederate to send web traffic, such as HTTP and HTTPS, so that it initiates through a forward proxy server.

  1. Edit the <pf_install>/pingfederate/bin/run.properties file.
  2. Locate for the following properties.
    #http.proxyHost=<HTTP_PROXY_HOST>
    #http.proxyPort=<HTTP_PROXY_PORT>
    #https.proxyHost=<HTTPS_PROXY_HOST>
    #https.proxyPort=<HTTPS_PROXY_PORT>
    #http.nonProxyHosts=*.internal.com|localhost
  3. Optional: Configure forward proxy server settings for HTTP traffic.
    1. Remove the number sign (#) in front of http.proxyHost and http.proxyPort.
    2. Enter the hostname or the IP address of the forward proxy server.
  4. Optional: Configure forward proxy server settings for HTTPS traffic.
    1. Remove the number sign in front of https.proxyHost and https.proxyPort.
    2. Enter the hostname or the IP address of the forward proxy server.
  5. Optional: Configure an exclusion list.
    1. Remove the number sign in front of http.nonProxyHosts.
    2. Specify one or more destinations where PingFederate is not required to proxy its HTTP and HTTPS traffic through the forward proxy server.

      This property supports multiple values separated by the pipe character (|) and the wildcard character (#) for pattern matching.
