Aspera Proxy Server 1.0.1 Release Notes
Product Release: Nov 7, 2013
Release Notes Updated: Nov 15, 2013
Aspera Proxy protects your organization’s network while enabling secure, high-speed fasp transfers to and from highly restrictive network environments. Built on top of the Linux kernel, it allows transparent pass-through of fasp transfer sessions across secure DMZs without impeding transfer speeds or compromising the security of your internal network.
Aspera Proxy also supports load balancing, high availability, and flexible security policies. It consolidates fasp transfers in and out of a corporate network and enables precise control over which users can initiate transfers with remote Aspera transfer servers.
Aspera Proxy supports both forward (outbound) and reverse (inbound) proxy modes, allowing fasp transfers to be initiated by users who are either inside or outside the corporate network.
Aspera Proxy 1.0.1 provides two important bug fixes.
ISSUES FIXED IN THIS RELEASE
#23574 - No information is logged when reverse proxy fails.
#23585 - Transfers are denied for a user if a previous transfer from a different user is running when using reverse proxy.
#19184 - Proxy installer does not enable IP forwarding when using restart or force-reload options with the service command. WORKAROUND: Use start and stop to run the service.
#19185 - If you specify a directory for <log_dir>, the log file will be created with 0640 permissions. As a result, not all transfers will be logged. WORKAROUND: Once the log file has been created, change its permissions to 0660.
#19202 - Proxy does not currently support reverse proxy for web applications.
#19205 - Proxy does not support HTTP fallback.
#21288 - On some Linux platforms (for example, SUSE) the iptables-restore command is not located in /sbin. WORKAROUND: Symlink iptables-restore to /sbin.
Do not install Aspera Proxy on a machine where Aspera Enterprise Server or Connect Server is installed. If these products are already installed, be sure to remove them before installing Aspera Proxy.
Linux (RedHat or Debian) with kernel 2.4 or higher and libc version GLIB 2.3.4 or higher.
