About proxy services at IU

On this page:


Overview

At Indiana University, proxy services are available to system administrators whose systems require private IP space. Proxy services allow systems in private IP space to access specified IP addresses and URLs outside the IU network for access to needed patches and updates.

When configuring your system to use one of IU's proxy services, do not use it for addresses within IU's top- and second-level domains (iu.edu, indiana.edu, iupui.edu, iub.edu, iun.edu, iue.edu, ius.edu, iusb.edu, iuk.edu, iufw.edu, or iupuc.edu).

Note:

There are a couple of differences between the Data Center and Campus proxies:

  • The Data Center proxy will only allow specific URLs and not wildcard destinations, while the Campus proxy will be open to all destinations.
  • Campus proxy requests will not be for individual hosts, but will be for a full range of the VLAN being requested. Campus proxy requests should be made using the cidr mask range of the VLAN (example: 129.79.10.0/24).

Data Center proxy service

To request proxy service for a system that resides within an IU Data Center, use the Data Center Proxy Submission form.

Notes:
  • This service is limited to systems that reside within the IU Data Centers.
  • UITS Campus Network Engineering reserves the right to review requested access to IPs/URLs.
  • All private IP space allocated in the Data Centers is allowed to reach Duo through the Data Center proxy without any special request or approval process.
  • Wildcard URLs are not supported.
  • You must be granted access to the proxy service before you can use it.
  • Data Center proxy configuration:
    • IP address: 156.56.18.228
    • Port: For HTTP traffic, use 8080; for HTTPS traffic, use 8443.

Campus proxy service

To request proxy service for a system that resides within a campus building, use the Campus Building Proxy Request form.

Notes:
  • This service is limited to systems that are connected to IU's wired network and reside within campus buildings.
  • Systems with public IP addresses (including wireless devices) are not permitted to use this service.
  • This service is not intended to allow departments to move all of their wired devices to private IP addresses.
  • This service is a limited resource; UITS Campus Network Engineering reserves the right to review requested access for devices that will be using the service.
  • All outbound destinations are permitted by default.
  • You must be granted access to the Campus proxy service before you can use it.
  • Campus proxy configuration:
    • IP address:
      • Northern region (IUPUI, IUFW, IUK, IUN, and IUSB): 134.68.206.6
      • Southern region (IUB, IUE, IUPUC, IUS, and Evansville campuses): 156.56.234.6
    • Port: For HTTP traffic, use 8080; for HTTPS traffic, use 8443.
