How to configure access to remote via external proxy
For outbound http traffic we need to go via an external proxy. We send
a soap request via this route:
AS400 ==> External proxy ==> remote site
We have looked all over on internet but it is strangely quiet on this
topic. We find a lot on how to configure the AS400 as a proxy server,
but this is not what we want.
What and how must we configure the above scenario? Has it something to
do with proxy-chaining?

Either the native TCP/IP layer on the iSeries need to know about the
proxy, your application doing the soap request must know how to
speak proxy-language or you put in a transparent translator box.
The easiest is probably configuring the application, and if that fails
then look into a small Linux-PC doing transparent http proxying. See

but it should get you started).
