Set proxy in Morph Browser



  • I want to set a proxy in the Ubuntu Touch browser, Morph, so that queries can be filtered by squid. Setting squid as a transparent proxy does not make the job because https connections cannot be filtered like that.
    I have been unable to find any information on that point. Does this require to patch the source code and rebuild ?
    I am working on a Nexus 5.
    Thanks for any information.

    Update : I tested Onion browser, but I still don't see anything for giving a proxy IP and port.



  • Ubuntu Touch uses NetworkManager to manage it's network connections.

    It might be possible to configure your proxy server from the command line with nmcli. I haven't tried it myself, but here is a link to the man pace online.

    Let us know how you get on with it.



  • @Idefix said in Set proxy in Morph Browser:

    Manually specifying the proxy to use doesn't change this. To filter HTTPS, your proxy server will need to break encryption. There are additional tools that can be used with squid to achieve this, but I do not recall the names of them.

    I think this is unrelated to UT itself, if what you want is to filter encrypted traffic through your proxy (as that is a server/network administration problem).
