Connection Options

 

ISL Online applications can be configured in a way, that will connect them through ISL Online forward proxy and boost certain type of connection transport. You can choose one of the following methods to apply connection options:

Note: customers looking to apply connection options on multiple computers at once should prefer using registry keys option or command line arguments.

There are different ISL Online connection transports available to channel connection via intermediary proxy.

  • wstun-proxy
  • wsstun-proxy
  • httpt-proxy
  • https-proxy


Registry keys

A better alternative to manual changes in the settings might be to distribute prepared registry keys, that will hold values for ISL Online connection options. Connection options set via registry key will apply to all ISL Online products, so you can deploy these registry files on all the computers where connection needs to go through ISL Online forward proxy.

Command line arguments

ISL Light Desk and ISL Light Client connection options cannot be configured via settings, but there are command line arguments available to achieve this.

To run ISL Light 4/ISL Light Desk/ISL Light Client with proxy connection options and boost desired transport, run it with the following command line arguments and values:

ISL Light Client.exe --conn-options "http_proxy=<ip>:<port>&boost=<proxy_transport>" 

Example:

ISL Light Client.exe --conn-options "http_proxy=34.199.41.164:32000&boost=wsstun-proxy" 

Note: if you opt for command line arguments option, customization can be prepared for such case, so that command line arguments will already be embedded in the downloaded executable. Contact ISL Online support in such case.
