We have a set of UF in a private network that is totally isolated from the Deployment server. For forwarder to indexer traffic we will use intermediate forwarders however we would also like to utilize the deployment server. Is it possible to configure a UF to point to a deployment server through a proxy?
Yes we'll be using HTTPS as the DS protocol. My main requirement is to send only DS traffic to the proxy and indexer traffic through normal means. I wasn't entirely sure if using the splunkd as the protocol would allow for sending ONLY HF to DS traffic via proxy? I'll give it a shot
I tested this and confirmed that once you configure Splunkd to use a proxy, it will use the proxy to contact the DS and it does not affect the forwarder to indexer traffic as it uses S2S.
