Does SOAPUI 5 support connection through SOCKS?

hi,

I have a site, which i can access only thru ssh socks proxy and it is extremely important to have soapui working over socks5 proxy. in settings i see only "generic" proxy setting and setting  vmoptions to

 

-DsocksProxyHost=127.0.0.1
-DsocksProxyPort=1080

 

does not work. assuming trying to access http proxy instead of socks5.

please advise how soapui can be used with socks5 proxy?

 

thanks

Hi @hvspa,

I didnt know the answer to this so i had a bit of a search.

There are old posts going back 5 and 9 years saying SoapUI doesnt support SOCKS proxy, but it appears that a forum member found a workaround several years ago.

Perhapa the following link will sort it out for you

Cheers,

Rich
if this helped answer the post, could you please mark it as 'solved'? Also if you consider whether the title of your post is relevant? Perhaps if the post is solved, it might make sense to update the Subject header field of the post to something more descriptive? This will help people when searching for problems. Ta

Re: Does SOAPUI 5 support connection through SOCKS?

thanks much for reaching back Richie,

 

actually the suggestion was already in the config. maybe previously it was not being set correctly in the vmoptions file, but in my release it was there:

 

-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true
-DsocksProxyHost=127.0.0.1
-DsocksProxyPort=1080

 

the thing is that it just sets http proxy, whereas i am looking for socks5.

 

thanks again,

art

Does it work with above arguments?

Here is java documentation

Re: Does SOAPUI 5 support connection through SOCKS?

thanks NMRAO,

following is the config from my vmoptions file and it does not work:

 

-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true
-DsocksProxyHost=127.0.0.1
-DsocksProxyPort=1080

 

my question is generic. i'd like to know if SOAPUI(the code itself) supports socks proxy or not? it might be supporting only http proxy...

 

i'd appreciate if someone can confirm that.

thanks 🙂

Could not find any of the above arguments in the github.com/smartbear/soapui (the source code)
