Minemeld Proxy error



I've setup Minemeld to use the corporate proxies based on this thread and I'm still getting this error:


"ConnectTimeout: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='www.dshield.org', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /block.txt (Caused by ConnectTimeoutError(<requests.packages.urllib3.connection.VerifiedHTTPSConnection object at 0x7f2bee031f10>, 'Connection to www.dshield.org timed out. (connect timeout=20)'))"


The environment setting are below:

ubuntu@minemeld:~$ cat /etc/environment 

Proxy setting for minemeld:

ubuntu@minemeld:~$ cat /etc/default/minemeld 

I'm able to download the block.txt file via wget. Are there any other settings for the proxy?

Re: Minemeld Proxy error

Hi @otlaP5,


the way you configure the OS to make the wget tool use a proxy and the way you configure the Python Runtime to make the requests page (the one MineMeld relies on) use a proxy are different. So getting wget to work in the same hosts wher MineMeld lives doesn't mean everything is configured OK.


Said that, your environment configuration seems OK. Next things I'd investigate would be:

  • Does the proxy requiere authentication?
  • Does the proxy enforce SSL Decryption?

Re: Minemeld Proxy error

Hello xhoms,


I've figure out the solution. Turns out I was running the below two commands to restart minemeld and it wasn't loading the proxy config file correctly.

/etc/init.d/minemeld stop
/etc/init.d/minemeld start


The restart command seems to work fine.

/etc/init.d/minemeld restart
