This article addresses the limitations of the SGOS custom upload client option used for Access Logging purposes via Edge SWG (formerly ProxySG) appliances.



SGOS supports several upload clients for the appliance. One of these is the custom client which can be selected and edited under the Configuration > Access Logging > Logs > Upload Client menu.
Note: Multiple upload clients can be configured per log facility, but only one can be enabled and used per upload.

Here's the key custom client information:

  • The Custom client is based on plain sockets and you must have a socket server to use the Custom client.
  • FQDNs or hostnames are not supported by the custom client; instead only IPs can be used.
    • IPs must be entered in IPv4 format.
    • After an IP address is entered for the host, specify a port number; the default port is "69" for custom clients.
  • If the "Use secure connections (SSL)" option is selected, the IP address entered as the Host IP must match the IP address in the certificate presented by the server.
  • In respect to the upload client "Transmission Parameters"
    • The encryption option (Encryption Certificate) is not available for Custom clients.
    • The digital signing option (Signing Keyring) is not available for Custom clients.
