Remote Services

The Remote Services section manages some external services needed by the load balancer like the DNS for resolving network names, NTP to have the system clock synchronized, and the Proxy service. This allows the load balancer to use an external proxy for internal services.

Every change in this section must be applied by clicking on the Apply button. Use the Revert Changes button in order to discard the modifications made in the form and revert back the previous applied configuration.

DNS Service

The Domain Name System service is used to resolve domain names to obtain their network addresses. Servers configured for DNS resolution will be stored in the system file /etc/resolve.conf.

Primary Server. The IP address of the primary name server. The default value will be 8.8.8.8.
Secondary Server. The IP address of the secondary name server. This value is optional and it is blank by default.

NTP service

This service is used to synchronize the load balancer’s system date and time clock.

NTP Server. The server IP address or domain name to which the load balancer connects to synchronize the system date and time. The default value will be pool.ntp.org.

Proxy Service

This service is intended to allow the load balancer access to the Internet through a remote proxy. Some services like updates use this option if configured.

HTTP Proxy. If you want to use an HTTP proxy for HTTP requests, define the full URL of an HTTP proxy, i.e. http://myproxy:80.
HTTPS Proxy. If you want to use an HTTPS proxy for HTTPS requests, define the full URL of an HTTPS proxy, i.e. http://myproxy:443.
