Creating a Proxy Server

You can create a proxy server and use it to manage, operate, and maintain servers.


You have the operation permissions for the Host module.


  1. Log in to the CBH system.
  2. Choose Resource > Host in the navigation pane on the left.
  3. Click the Proxy Server tab and then New. In the displayed dialog box, edit the proxy server information.

    Table 1 Proxy server parameters



    Server Name

    Name of the proxy server. You can enter 1 to 128 characters.

    Proxy Type

    Select a proxy type. Currently, only SOCKS5 is supported.

    Server Address

    The private or public IP address of the server that is created as the proxy server.

    The IP address must be able to communicate with the CBH instance.


    Port for the proxy server to access.

    The default port for SOCKS5 is 1080. If a fixed port is set, enter the fixed port number.


    Select a department. If no department is available, create one.

    Server Account

    Username for the account for logging in to the proxy server.


    Password of the account for logging in to the proxy server.

    Test connectivity

    When creating a server, you can test its connectivity.

    You are advised to select this option. If this option is not selected, the connectivity of the proxy server cannot be ensured, so the server may fail to manage or maintain resources.

  4. Confirm the information and click OK.
