Proxy Configuration

If you need to force your Internet traffic through a proxy server, you can put your proxy server settings in /etc/environment like this:

export http_proxy=http://server:port
export https_proxy=https://server:port
export ftp_proxy=https://server:port
export no_proxy="localhost,127.0.0.1"

You may also need to include the actual IP address of the Security Onion box itself in the no_proxy variable above.

Docker

To configure Docker proxy settings, please see https://docs.docker.com/network/proxy/.

sudo

If you’re going to run something using sudo, remember to use the -i option to force it to process the environment variables. For example:

sudo -i rule-update
