3.9 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

OS X Proxy Puppet Module

This module contains all the files necessary for managing the following with Puppet:

  • FTP Proxy server/port
  • Web Proxy server/port
  • Gopher Proxy server/port
  • Secure Proxy server/port
  • Streaming Proxy server/port
  • Socks Proxy server/port
  • Auto Proxy URL
  • Proxy bypass domains

How to use

  • Install the module in your Puppet modulepath (If you don't know your main Puppet modulepath, you can find it with sudo puppet config print modulepath
  • Discover all resources with sudo puppet resource mac_web_proxy (or appropriate proxy type)
  • Declare and enforce configuration like you would normally with Puppet

Puppet Types

  • mac_web_proxy
  • mac_ftp_proxy
  • mac_gopher_proxy
  • mac_secure_proxy
  • mac_socks_proxy
  • mac_auto_proxy
  • mac_proxy_bypassdomains

Declaring a proxy resource

The web, ftp, gopher, secure, and socks proxy types are all declared similarly and use the same properties/parameters:

mac_web_proxy { 'Ethernet':
  ensure       => present,
  proxy_server => '',
  proxy_url    => '8080'

The auto proxy only accepts a proxy_server property, and does not accept a proxy_port property:

mac_auto_proxy { 'Ethernet':
  ensure       => present,
  proxy_server => '',

The mac_proxy_bypassdomains type accepts an array for the domain property and sets the domains that should bypass the proxies for that network interface:

mac_proxy_bypassdomains { 'Ethernet':
  domains => ['*', '', ''],
