Answer:

The Proxy needs a DNS-Server to resolve the URLs. There are 2 ways to configure a DNS-Server for the Proxy-Service.

 

Configure the DNS-Server in the Box-Settings:

  1. Navigate to Config > Box > Administrative Settings > DNS Settings
  2. Set a DNS-Server in the DNS Server IP list.
  3. Set the option in Run Forwarding/Caching DNS Config to No.

  4. Restart the Proxy-Service.

 

Configure the DNS-Server in the advanced configuration of the proxy:

This option should only be used if the proxy will use another DNS-Server as the box itself.

  1. Navigate to Config > Box > Virtual Servers > <Servername> > Assigned Services > <Servicename> > HTTP Proxy Settings > Advanced
  2. Set the option dns_nameservers.
    1. dns_nameservers 192.168.10.1
  3. Navigate to Config > Box > Administrative Settings > DNS Settings.
  4. Set the option in Run Forwarding/Caching DNS Config to No.
  5. Restart the Proxy-Service.
