Installing a proxy

In this recipe, we will show you how to install a proxy in your network. The installation of a proxy is very straightforward as you will see. However, monitoring and configuring the proxy can be more complicated. For this reason, we have split up installation and the different types of configuring a proxy in this chapter.

Getting ready

What we need for this recipe is of course, our Zabbix server with super administrator rights. We need an extra machine to install our proxy.

How to do it…

As the proxy is a lightweight version of the Zabbix server, the installation procedure is almost exactly the same.

  1. First we add the Zabbix repository to our server:
    rpm -ivh
    http://repo.zabbix.com/zabbix/2.4/rhel/6/x86_64/zabbix- release-2.4-1.el6.noarch.rpm ...
