Aspera Proxy Server 1.2.1 Release Notes

  • Product Release: Sep 12, 2014
  • Release Notes Updated: Sep 12, 2014


This release of Aspera Proxy makes the following change and corrects issues listed below.

  • Source-port filtering is now disabled by default (<src_port_filtering> is set to false). For information about source-port filtering, see the Aspera Proxy Admin Guide.


#19255 - Proxy cannot identify client via hostname.

#20261 - Proxy: ascp -A does not provide information about license validity.

#22963 - Documentation implies reverse proxy requires squash user account on the proxy machine.

#23585 - Transfers denied for user if a previous transfer from a different user is running when using a reverse proxy.


#19184 - Proxy installer does not enable IP forwarding when using restart or force-reload options with the service command. Workaround: Use start and stop to run the service.

#19185 - If you specify a directory for <log_dir>, the log file is created with 0640 permissions. As a result, not all transfers will be logged. Workaround: Once the log file has been created, change its permissions to 0660.

#19202 - Proxy does not currently support reverse proxy for web applications.

#19205 - Proxy does not support HTTP fallback.

#21288 - On some Linux platforms (for example, SUSE) the iptables-restore command is not located in /sbin but /usr/sbin. Workaround: Create a symlink in /sbin for /usr/sbin/iptables-restore.


Note: Do not install Aspera Proxy on a machine where Aspera Enterprise Server or Connect Server is installed. If these products are already installed, be sure to remove them before installing Aspera Proxy.


Linux 64-bit: RedHat 6 & 7, CentOS 6 & 7, Fedora 15-20, Ubuntu 12-14, Debian 6 & 7, SLES 11, Kernel 2.4 or higher and libc version GLIB 2.3.4+.
