I’m working behind a proxy, is there any way to establish a mongodb connection using a proxy? Otherwise I’ll use a local instance of mongoDB.
If it’s a plain HTTP/HTTPS proxy, then no. Mongo connections are not HTTP(S). If it’s a SOCKS proxy… maybe…
A quick bit of research suggest you’ll need an outgoing SSH tunnel, or a VPN connection. Sorry mate.
It is indeed an HTTP proxy, I’ve read the same as you when searching, the post was a long shot, hoping there may be some alternative.
I will use a local instance of MongoDB instead of Atlas in that case. Thank you for your response and confirming.
@pawlowsg sorry there’s not better news, but you shouldn’t have any issues running locally. While building all of the M220 variants we tested against both local and Atlas deployments.
That’s good to hear. I will do local and maybe try Atlas if I get to a connection without a proxy.
The jest test for “Client initialized with URI” when calling
npm test -t mongoclient in Lecutre: MongoClient fails because the connection is local and not SSL. That’s not a big deal, I was still able to continue and get the validation code in the status page later on.
PS. I finished the prievious NodeJS course M101JS and this one i feel is already much better structured. I look forward to completing it. I also like the new message board.
MongoU was my first encounter with Discourse. Ever since, I’m a huge fan love the software!
I agree with @pawlowsg; this course is much better structured and I really like the es6/7 and async/await functional structure.
