Hi Frank,

Syslog-ng uses your system's proxy settings, there is no option to set it in your syslog-ng configuration.

Best regards,
From: syslog-ng <syslog-ng-bounces at lists.balabit.hu> on behalf of Frank Crawford <Frank.Crawford at ac3.com.au>

We have recently upgraded to syslog-ng v3.19 so we can use the slack hook, but have an issue that to access the URL we will need to go through a squid web proxy.

How do we configure the details of the proxy in either syslog-ng or in the slack destination?
