The way to "configure a port" is for a specific program to open the TCP / UDP port that it needs.


That program should then be the one that handles using a proxy.

Hi Patrick Wallek,


Thanks for your replay, but there is no option to configure the proxy IP and port in the application side.

only he configured the SMS server IP and 3636 port which we configured in UNIX box.


For that we need away to access the SMS server on port 3636 through the proxy IP with 8080 port.


APP_in_UNIX  ==>  ProxyIP:8080   ==>  SMS_Server:3636





Re: Proxy Issue in HP-UX



You can do it by using "connect":


From its help:


  usage:  connect [-dnhs45] [-R resolve] [-p local-port] [-w sec]
		  [-H [user@]proxy-server[:port]]
		  [-S [user@]socks-server[:port]]
		  host port

So you can try  ssh with the "ProxyCommand connect" option. 


Kind Regards,
