I’m currently researching for a way to route all traffic from a Balena device through a proxy. The thread here raised an interesting approach as well as some very relevant questions - routing all traffic through a proxy…
Generally speaking, though I am interested if there are any recommendations on how to get production/scalable SOCKS5 proxy on the cloud side. The purpose is to route all traffic from a Balena device to a single IP address (with white label domain) on a single port and have that proxy relay requests to the wider internet.
These devices need to be deployed behind restrictive firewalls where we have to negotiate our access to the wider internet. Our job would be made much easier if we could ask for all traffic to a single external IP address to be placed on the allowlist.
Are there any method - or even better, SaaS products - that offer this sort of service that you’d recommend?
- static reserved IP address to connect to proxy via single port
- white label domain on reserved IP
- authentication & logging
