how do i use a private proxy on internet when all traffic needs to go through my corporate proxy first.
Posted on 2010-11-11
i work as a network admin
we have a corporate proxy for accessing anything on the Internet.
now i have a new task, which is to create a new proxy server located on the Internet for
selected users. lets call it proxy in the cloud
in other words, most of my users will keep using the existing corporate proxy
only few selected users need to use a proxy in the cloud.
I know i can get a virtual private server from any isp
i also can install a proxy server on this vps
so i can build a proxy in the cloud for myself. no problems here
but my question is
how do i configure a user to use the proxy in the cloud AND go out via corporate proxy at the same time?
problem is no one can go out unless the browser is configured to hit the corporate proxy
how do i tell the corporate proxy that if a request is coming from user A then send it to the proxy in the cloud?
i though of the proxy pac file but not very sure on howto use it in this scenario
another option of course is to bypass the corporate proxy which i do not want to do.
let me know if i am not clear enough and i can clarify further.
thank you experts
