1-2 Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server Release Notes
Hardware and Software Requirements
1.4.2 System Virtualization Support
System virtualization is a technology that enables multiple operating system (OS)
instances to execute independently on shared hardware. Functionally, software
deployed to an OS hosted in a virtualized environment is generally unaware that the
underlying platform has been virtualized. Oracle performs testing of its products on
select system virtualization and OS combinations to help validate that Oracle products
continue to function on properly sized and configured virtualized environments as
they do on non-virtualized systems.
For information about support for Oracle products in virtualized environments, see:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/ias/oracleas-supported-virtua
lization-089265.html
1.4.3 Swap Space
In addition to the requirements provided in Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.14+
Certification Matrix, your system must also have adequate swap space:
■
■
Solaris requires a swap space that is at least as large as the amount of RAM on
your system (twice the amount of RAM is recommended).
Linux requires 256 megabytes of swap space.

1.4.6 Deprecation Notices
Operating System Versions. As of the release of Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy
Server 4.0.16, the following operating system versions are deprecated and will become
unsupported in a future release of Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server:
HP-UX 11.11
Microsoft Windows 2000 Server and Windows 2000 Advanced Server
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Server 3
Solaris 8
Solaris 9 for SPARC and x86

following web browser versions are deprecated and will become unsupported in a
future release of Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server:
Microsoft Internet Explorer 6
Mozilla 1.4.1 and 1.7.2
Netscape Navigator 7.1 and 7.2
1.5 Supported Software, Technologies, and Protocols
The recent releases of Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server include the enhancements
described in the following subsections.
1.5.1 Transparent Proxy
Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0 supports transparent proxy for HTTP/1.1
connections. Transparent proxying involves intercepting and processing web requests
by using the proxy server, without the knowledge or control of clients. For example, a
router for a local network is configured to redirect incoming TCP connections to the
local port, in which the proxy server is active.
Add the following directive to the proxy server default object in the obj.conf file:
NameTrans fn="host-map"
This configuration enables the proxy server to use the HTTP Host: header of incoming
requests to identify and redirect the request to the target remote server.
Transparent proxy servers that decide connections based on
the HTTP Host: headers are vulnerable to fake HTTP Host: headers
forged through the active content. Therefore, suitable ACL
configurations must be implemented to prevent connections to web
sites that might host malicious content.

1-4 Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server Release Notes
Supported Software, Technologies, and Protocols
1.5.2 URL Mapping
URL mapping was implemented in Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.8. It enables
Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server to act as a reverse proxy. This feature enables Oracle
iPlanet Web Proxy Server to provide a single front-end host name for back-end
application servers. Based on a requester's URI, access is provided to back-end servers.
For more information about URL mapping, see "Reverse Proxy Scenario" in Oracle
iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.14 Configuration File Reference.
For information about Server Application Functions (SAFs) used in URL mapping, see
"Server Application Functions (SAFs)" in Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.14
Configuration File Reference.
1.5.3 Monitoring Server Parameters
The monitoring capabilities of Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server provide a detailed list
of the server parameters that you can monitor at instance level.
From the Proxy Administration Server, you can perform the following actions:
■
View server statistics at an instance level
■
Enable or disable parameters at an instance level
To monitor the server, do the following:
1.
Access the Administration Server
2.
Click the Instance link from the Manage Servers page
3.
Click the Server Status tab
4.
Click the Monitor Current Activity tab
5.
Set the Monitoring Current Activity to ON to monitor the server
You can also refresh the server in intervals of 5,10, and 15 seconds and view the
statistics of the DNS, Keep-Alive, Cache, Server Requests, and Work Thread
connections.
1.5.4 Embedded DNS Resolution
The embedded DNS supports the nondefault name resolution. The DNS client
interacts with a DNS server to perform the name resolution. The new SAF dns-lookup,
receives the DNS server's IP address as a server argument. This IP address should be
added as a DNS directive in the obj.conf file.
In the following example, the IP address of the DNS server is specified in the server
parameter:
<object>
....
DNS fn="dns-lookup" server="170.168.10.3"
...
</object>
In the following example, you can add multiple DNS server IPs to dns-lookup-init,
and it will be used in a round-robin model. In this scenario, do not add DNS server IP
address to dns-lookup. If DNS server parameters are added to both dns-lookup and
dns-lookup-init, the dns-lookup argument will take precedence.
...
<Object>
Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.25 Release Notes 1-5
Supported Software, Technologies, and Protocols
...
DNS fn="dns-lookup"
....
Init fn="dns-lookup-init" servers="170.168.10.3, 170.158.10.4"
</Object>
Information about the Parameter cont
The dns-lookup SAF takes a cont parameter (for continue), which is true by default. If
the embedded DNS resolution fails, the server reverts to the system DNS resolution. If
set to false, the server reports an error when embedded DNS resolution fails.
1.5.5 ACL Cache Tuning
ACLCacheMax is a magnus.conf parameter that sets a limit to the total number of ACLs
stored in the ACL cache. There is no default value for ACLCacheMax and it should be
configured for a specific limit.
For example, ACLCacheMax 16384
The ACL cache in this context does not refer to the ACL user
cache. It refers to a cache where ACLs are applicable to specific URLs
that are cached for performance reasons.
Note:
GCAtStartup is a magnus.conf parameter that allows a Boolean value. By default, the
value is false; if set to true, cache garbage collector clears the garbage during the server
startup. This can increase the server startup time when the cache size is large.
1.5.6 Cache PURGE Feature
Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server allows PURGE requests to clear the cached URL. If the
requested URL is purged successfully, a response with an HTTP status code of 200
(OK) is sent by the server. If the specified URL is not cached, a 404 (Not Found)
response is sent.
In the following example, the server returns the value 200:
bash-2.03$ telnet localhost 8088
Trying 172.9.10.1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
PURGE http://foo.com/ HTTP/1.0
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: Oracle-iPlanet-Proxy-Server/4.0
Date: Fri, 26 Oct 2007 08:15:30 GMT
Connection: close
In the following example, the server returns the value 404:
Connection closed by foreign host.
bash-2.03$ telnet localhost 8088
Trying 172.9.10.1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
PURGE http://foo.com/ HTTP/1.0
HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found

1.5.13 Impact of U.S. DST Changes 2007
Daylight Savings Time (DST) starts in U.S.A from the 2nd Sunday of March and ends
on the 1st Sunday of November. This impacts the date and time rules of the operating
system.
To ensure that the log files contain the correct time in US time zones, and that the
Administration Server is not impacted by this change, do the following:
■
Download and install the appropriate operating system patches.
For other platforms, download similar DST-compatible patches from the
respective operating system vendor's web site.
■
For Solaris, Windows, and Linux, run Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server with JRE

Daylight Savings Time (DST) will start in U.S.A from the 2nd Sunday of March and
end on the 1st Sunday of November. This will impact the date and time rules of the
operating system and JRE.
In the standalone version of Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server, the JRE version
compatible with 2007 DST changes is bundled with the installer. However, you
need to address the impact on the date and time rules of the operating system by
installing the appropriate operating system patches as explained in Step 1 of the
Workaround.
For the Java ES 5 installation of Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server, you need to
install the operating system patches and also the compatible version of JRE. Follow
Step 1 and Step 2 of the workaround.
Workaround
1.
Download and use the appropriate operating system patches.
For other platforms, download similar DST-compatible patches from the
operating system vendor's web site.
2.
For Solaris, Windows, and Linux, run Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server with
JRE 1.4.2_13. For HP-UX, run Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server with JRE
1.4.2.12.

The Administration Server fails to start when a proxy installation that uses a
custom JDK configuration is upgraded to a service pack version that requires a
newer JDK version. After the upgrade, the JDK configuration must be manually
modified to point to either the bundled JDK or a custom JDK of the required
version.
6909558
Backslashes should be used in LDAP UIDs only to escape special characters. The
ldap sdk used by the Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server will remove backslashes
from the UID before sending the same to the directory server. This can possibly
lead to a situation where the authentication fails where it should succeed (because
the UID, with backslashes stripped, finds no match in the directory server), or even
succeeds where it should fail (because the UID, with backslashes stripped, finds a
match in the directory server).
6888170
Upgrade fails on RHEL4 when the specified target directory name contains a trailing
slash.

Fails to migrate from Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 3.6 to Oracle iPlanet Web
Proxy Server 4.0 with Security Sockets Layer (SSL) configuration.
Currently, Web Proxy 3.6 certificates cannot be migrated to a Web Proxy 4.0
instance.
Workaround:
1.
Turn off the security option in the Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 3.6
instance.
2.
Migrate from Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 3.6 to 4.0.
3.
Generate a certificate signing request (CSR).

3.2.2 Increase in the Maximum Cache Capacity
The "Setting Cache Capacity" section of the Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.13
Administration Guide mentions that the cache capacity can be up to a maximum of 32
GB.
Starting from the 4.0.10 release, the maximum cache capacity that can be configured
through the administration interface is 128 GB.
You can manually configure the cache capacity to any value
higher than 128 GB (no upper limit) by editing the server.xml
configuration file. But if you opt for the manual configuration route
and want to set the cache capacity to a value that is less than 128 GB,
then only the following values are allowed: 125, 250, 500, 1000, 2000,
4000, 8000, 16000, 32000, 64000, 128000.
Note:
3.2.3 %Req->vars.xfer-time% Option of the flex-init Function
In the "Log Format" section of the Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.14 Configuration
File Reference, Table 5-4 lists the available flexible logging options. The
%Req->vars.xfer-time% option is missing from the list.
The%Req->vars.xfer-time% option can be used to log the transfer time (in seconds).
3.2.4 clf-request-leading-whitespace Parameter of the flex-log SAF
Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.16 supports a new parameter,
clf-request-leading-whitespace, for the flex-log SAF of the AddLog directive. The
following table provides information about the new parameter.

earlier releases, but are not documented in the Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.14
Configuration File Reference at http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E21692_
01/821-1883/aebjw/index.html.
Table 3–3
Parameters of the http-client-config SAF
Parameter
Description
forward-unread-request (Optional) This boolean parameter indicates whether a request
-body
body that arrives in a TCP packet separate from the request header
should be forwarded to the origin server. The default value is false,
meaning that request bodies arriving in TCP packets separate from
their request headers are not forwarded to the origin server.
rewrite-error
(Optional) When this boolean parameter is enabled, the proxy
server runs the Error stage when the origin server returns an error
status (HTTP status code of 400 or above). By default, this
parameter is disabled.
timeout
(Optional) This parameter specifies the timeout period in seconds.
It is used by the HTTP client while transferring data between
clients and origin servers. The default value is 300 seconds.
3.2.11 <Include> Tag in the obj.conf File
Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.15 supports a new tag in the obj.conf file. This
tag, <Include>, includes the content of another file in the obj.conf file, effectively
enabling you to divide the content of obj.conf across several files to make
management of your configuration easier.
The syntax of the <Include> tag is:
<Include>
filename
</Include>
filename is the name of the file to be included in the obj.conf file where the <Include>
tag occurs.
When using the <Include> tag, keep these points in mind:
■
■
■
The <Include> tag can be used outside the context of <Object>. For example, you
could put all the Init directives in a file and then include that file at the start of
the obj.conf. file.
An included file can contain other included files; that is, an included file can itself
contain an <Include> tag.
An included file cannot cross <Object> boundaries; that is, included file cannot
end one object and start another.
3.2.12 lookup-ipv6-first Parameter of the dns-config SAF
Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.15 supports a new parameter, lookup-ipv6-first,
for the dns-config SAF of the DNS directive. The following table provides information
about this new parameter.
Product Documentation 3-7
Corrections and Updates to 4.0 Documentation
Parameter
Description
lookup-ipv6-first
(Optional) A Boolean operator that specifies whether to look up
IPv6 or IPv4 addresses first. The default value is false, meaning
that IPv4 addresses are looked up first.
3.2.13 regexp-redirect Function of the NameTrans Directive
The section "NameTrans" in Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.14 Configuration File
Reference does not include information about the regexp-redirect function.
Information about this function follows.
The regexp-redirect function is applicable in NameTrans-class directives.
The regexp-redirect function enables you to change URLs and send the updated
URL to the client. When a client accesses your server with an old path, the server treats
the request as a request for the new URL.
The following table describes parameters for the regexp-redirect function.
Parameter
Description
from
A regular expression for the prefix of the requested URL to
match.
url/url-prefix
url specifies a complete URL to return to the client.
url-prefix specifies the new URL prefix to return to the client.
The from prefix is simply replaced by this URL prefix. You
cannot use these parameters together.
escape
(Optional) A Flag that tells the server to use the util_uri_
escape action on the URL before sending it. It should be yes or
no. The default is yes.
For more information about util_uri_escape, see Oracle
iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.14 NSAPI Developer's Guide.
bucket
(Optional) This is common to all obj.conf functions.
3.2.14 status-code and status-desc Parameters of the send-error SAF

however, is currently not enforced. It is to avoid HTTP violations by serving
aged/invalid content.
Product Documentation 3-11
Corrections and Updates to 4.0 Documentation
4.
The contents of in-memory file cache closely follow that of the disk cache. If a disk
file is updated, the disk file in-memory version gets updated during the next
request.
For more information about in-memory file cache configuration, see:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E21692_01/821-1883/aebcm/index.html
3.2.23 Using Proxy Arrays
Note the following about proxy arrays.
■
■
Once you create a proxy array, but before generating a PAC file from your PAT file,
proxy array must be explicitly enabled using the Configure System Preferences page
in the administration GUI.
While configuring a non-master proxy array member, the URL field should be set
to http://MasterProxy/pat where MasterProxy is the FQDN of the master proxy.
Ensure that the master proxy is configured to have a pat mapping which maps
/pat to the master proxy's pat file.
For more information about proxy arrays, see:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E21692_01/821-1882/6nmr9g0ap/index.html
3.2.24 Information About the forward-auth-user SAF
As a fix for bug 13693179, a new SAF forward-auth-user is introduced in Oracle
iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.19. This SAF is applicable for ObjectType directives.
The forward-auth-user SAF instructs the proxy server to forward the authenticated
user name to remote servers. The SAF takes an optional parameter, hdr, which
specifies the name of the HTTP request header used to communicate the authenticated
user name. The default value of the hdr parameter is Proxy-auth-user.
The following is the syntax of the forward-auth-user SAF:
ObjectType fn="forward-auth-user" [hdr="request_header"]
request_header is the name of the HTTP request header that should be used to
communicate the authenticated user name to the servers in the back end.
3.2.25 Information About New Attributes of FILECACHE Element
As a fix for bugs 13700698 and 13700670, the attributes listed in Table 3–6 are

3.2.27 Information About the timeout Property for dbswitch.conf Configuration File
The fix for bug 13989967 introduces a property, timeout, for LDAP configurations in
the dbswitch.conf configuration file. The timeout property specifies the duration (in
seconds) after which LDAP operations should time out. The property is disabled by
default; that is, by default, LDAP operations do not time out.
The following example shows the usage of the timeout property in the dbswitch.conf
configuration file.
ldap://ldaphost:ldapport/dc%3D...
default:binddn cn=Directory Manager
default:encoded bindpw cGFzc3dvcmQ=
default:timeout 30
In this example, the timeout property is set to 30 seconds.

The correct URL filter to access example.com is .*://.*\.example\.com/.*
■
Replace netscape.com with example.com.
3.2.29 Information about the NetWriteTimeout magnus.conf Parameter
The Web Proxy Server's http filter implements a magnus.conf parameter
NetWriteTimeout that will enable timeout on write operations to clients.
The NetWriteTimeout magnus.conf parameter takes an integer value which specifies
the client write timeout in seconds, and is disabled by default.
3.2.30 Information about the New Parameter enable-ipv6 for Internal dns-lookup
Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.21 introduces a new parameter enable-ipv6 for
internal dns-lookup. This parameter takes a boolean value and is false by default.
Setting it to true will enable lookup of IPv6 DNS records.
Example:
DNS fn="dns-lookup" server="…" enable-ipv6="true"
Product Documentation 3-13
Corrections and Updates to 4.0 Documentation
Note: enable-ipv6 for internal dns-lookup functionality is disabled
on Windows.
3.2.31 New SAF host-dns-cache-config to Control DNS Cache Behavior
Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.21 introduces a new SAF host-dns-cache-config
to control DNS cache behavior. This can be used to modify per-request DNS cache
behavior. host-dns-cache-config SAF takes the following parameters:
Parameter
Description
enabled
This is a boolean parameter and is "true" by default. When
disabled, DNS cache is not used.
host-regex
Takes a regular expression as value, and can be used to apply
host-dns-cache-config settings only to requests whose
Host: header matches the provided value.
ttl
Accepts an integer value that specifies the "time to live" in
seconds for DNS cache entries.
You can disable or enable DNS cache, or apply a specific ttl.
Examples:
■
The following directive disables DNS cache for requests to backends with name of
the pattern "backend.*":
ObjectType dns-cache-config host-regex="backend.*" enabled="false"
■
The following directive enforces a specific ttl for 10 seconds on cached DNS
entries to backend hostnames of the format "backend.*":
ObjectType dns-cache-config host-regex="backend.*" ttl="10"
3.2.32 Information about the -P option of the flexanlg command
"Working With the Log Analyzer", in Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.14 Administration
Guide, at: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E21692_01/821-1882/adyjv/index.html,
describes the -P option of the flexanlg command.
The following is the description of the -P option:
■
■
The -P option enables generation of data related to the proxy-specific components
like data related to client,proxy, cache, remote and matrix like cache hits, total
remote connections, date retrieved from remote, data written to cache, and so on.
The Generate Report link in the Administration Server interface uses the
command flexanlg with -P specified.
3.2.33 Change in HTTP 407 Error Page from 4.0.10
The error page for HTTP 407 changes when you upgrade to Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy
Server 4.0.10 or higher versions.
Before upgrading, you see the following message on the HTTP 407 error page:
Proxy Authentication Required
An error has occurred
3-14 Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server Release Notes
Corrections and Updates to 4.0 Documentation
After upgrading to version 4.0.10 or higher, you see the following message that is more
informative and specific:
Proxy Authentication Required
Proper authorization is required for this area.
Either your browser dose not perform autorization, or your authorization has
failed.
3.2.34 Compressed Content Cannot be Rewritten by Content URL Rewriting
The section "Content URL Rewriting" in Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.14
Administration Guide at http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E21692_
01/821-1882/adypf/index.html, describes how to configure content URL rewriting.
Note that compressed content cannot be rewritten by content URL rewriting.
3.2.35 Change in the cbuild command from Proxy Server 4.0.5
The following is the difference in cache creation by the cbuild command when you
upgrade from 4.0.4 to 4.0.5 or higher versions:
■
■
In Proxy Server 4.0.4 you can create a cache partition in an existing directory.
In Proxy Server 4.0.5 you cannot create a cache partition in an existing directory.
When you try to create a cache partition in an existing directory, the following
message is logged:
./cbuild -d /<install-directory>/<instance-name>/config -c
/<install-directory>/<instance-name>/cache -n 4
Uninitialized partition /<install-directory>/<instance-name>/cache already
exists
As a consequence to fix for bug 14703102, starting from 4.0.21
release, the cbuild command will accept an existing empty directory
as target location for a new partition.
Note:
3.2.36 keep-alive-timeout-absolute Parameter of the http-client-config SAF
Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.22 supports a new parameter,
keep-alive-timeout-absolute, for the http-client-config SAF. The following table
provides information about this new parameter.
Parameter
Description
keep-alive-timeout
Accepts an integer argument that specifies, in seconds, the
absolute maximum life span of a pooled connection.
3.2.37 Information about the sleepinterval server.xml Parameter
The sleepinterval attribute of the GC (Garbage Collection) element in server.xml
specifies the time, in seconds, the GC thread sleeps before waking up and inspecting
the configured partitions to check if garbage collection should be initiated.
The default value for this parameter is 45 seconds. Hence if sleepinterval is set to its
default value of 45 seconds, the GC thread would wake up every 45 seconds and
inspect the configured partitions.
Product Documentation 3-15
Documentation, Support, and Training
After the sleepinterval parameter is modified or set, the server must be restarted for
the changes to take effect.
3.2.38 New Parameter in the socks5.conf file

interface:
–
The button Undo Unsaved Changes is displayed along with the existing
buttons (Restart Proxy, Restart Socks, Load Configuration Files) when clicking
the Restart Required link. This button can be used to undo any unsaved
changes made through the Administration Server interface. When you click
this button, the administration or working copies of all configuration files (the
files under config directory) are returned to their last backup versions.
–
The button Undo Manual Changes can be used to undo any manual edits
done to the server configuration files. When you click this button, the server
copies of all configuration files (the files under config) are returned to their
last backup versions. The last backup versions are also stored in the config
directory, and maintained by the Administration server.
A new parameter enable-ipv6 has been introduced for internal dns-lookup. For
more information, see Section 3.2.30.
A parameter search-in has been introduced for internal dns-lookup to handle
non-FQDN lookups. The dns-lookup SAF fails unless the target hostname is an
FQDN. The parameter search-in specifies a comma-separated list of domain
names.
Example: DNS fn="dns-lookup" server="..." search-in="in.example.com,
us.example.com"
■
A new dbswitch parameter referrals has been introduced that optionally
disables referrals during LDAP search. This parameter is on by default. According
to your requirement, you may turn the referral off by setting the default value as
false.
