Working Behind Web Proxy
If you are working behind a company proxy or you have a local proxy running, it's necessary to tell Inkdrop to go through it. Here is a quick tip for those dealing with a proxy.
You can configure the web proxy settings by editing
config.cson. This config file is in following directory:
- on macOS:
- on Windows:
- on Linux:
Quit Inkdrop before you edit it.
"*": core: network: http_proxy: "http://webproxy:8080/" https_proxy: "http://webproxy:8080/"
If the web proxy requires BASIC auth, you can just specify a URL with username and password like so:
Note that if your username or password is like a mail address which includes "@" character or non-alphabetical characters, you have to percent-encode them according to RFC 3986, section 3.2.1, as following:
NG: http://email@example.com:password@webproxy:8080/ OK: http://david%40company.com:password@webproxy:8080/
Now open Inkdrop and you should be able to authenticate and get synced!
ipm is also necessary to be configured for working behind a web proxy.
ipm config set proxy "http://webproxy:8080" ipm config set https_proxy proxy "http://webproxy:8080"
You have to disable SSL certificate validation if your proxy server is SSL-enabled but with a self-signed certificate.
You can disable it by adding
strict_ssl: 0 in your
config.cson like so:
"*": core: network: strict_ssl: 0
ipm, run below command:
ipm config set strict-ssl false
If you got an error like that, your proxy server may be using TLSv1.0 which is obsolete. You have to update your proxy server to support newer protocols like TLSv1.2 since Inkdrop does not support TLSv1.0.
You can run a network diagnosis from the menu Help → Run Network Diagnosis:
It launches Developer Tools and reports the diagnosis result in the console. You should get something like this:
