Scope

  • This test is to verify that newly added proxy support in the viewer works as expected.
  • The user story that prompted the changes is STORM-1112 .
  • This test will only be meaningful if performed in a network environment that does not have access to second life.
  • The test also requires a working web proxy host and SOCKS 5 proxy host.
  • Estimated running time: 3 hours/platform after securing the appropriate test environment.

Set-up

Environment

  • Viewer: This test requires a build of the viewer that contains the LLProxy code. Grab the latest for your platform from the link below:
STORM-1112 Implement SOCKS 5 proxy
Allow the Second Life Viewer to connect through a SOCKS 5 proxy.
Windows | Macintosh | Linux

Source: https://bitbucket.org/log_linden/viewer_socks5
Details for these builds (build logs, included changesets)



  • Server: The test requires testing of mesh upload and download functionality, so access to a region with mesh support is required. Agni or Aditi are each fine. Region crossing will also be tested, so adjacent regions to test in will also be required.
  • A restrictive, firewalled network to connect the testing machine to is required to obtain valid test results.
  • A working web proxy host and a working SOCKS 5 host are required to complete the test.
  • Instructions to set up a reference Ubuntu Linux server that will act as a firewall and proxy gateway are available.
  • While 3rd party testers are welcome to set up a duplicate of our reference gateway server, we are also interested in results you might get in your organization's specific network setup, rather than using our reference setup. Since you might not be allowed to reconfigure your organization's firewall or proxy host, feel free to only test in the proxy configuration your organization supports and report on results you observe.

Other

  • You need a Second Life account that is able to upload mesh assets on the grid being tested. This will require you to have payment information on file and to pass a brief test on intellectual property rights. A tutorial to help you get set up is available in the Second Life Knowledge Base.
  • Your avatar should be a member of a group and be allowed to send messages in that group for testing.
  • Part of the test is making sure land parcel media is functional. Find somewhere in world that has both web parcel media and video parcel media.
  • Sandbox, or other area where building is allowed.
  • Have a test image file, sound file, and collada model available to test upload functionality. A sample collada model is available from the collada.org website.
  • To test the gpu table and feature table download functionality of the viewer, a packet capture tool on the proxy host such as wireshark or tcp_dump is necessary to verify that the request tool is making use of the proxy. This might not be possible if you do not have access to your organization's proxy host.

SOCKS 5 with Username/Password Authentication

  • Successful Login with SOCKS Authentication Test that the viewer can connect when the SOCKS 5 host requires a password.

    • Also in the proxy settings floater, select Username/Password as the SOCKS Authentication method.
    • Enter your SOCKS 5 username and password in the appropriate fields. If you followed the reference gateway instructions, your linux username and password should work for the socks credentials.
    • Select OK.
    • Try to log in to Second Life.
    • Verify that login is successful.
    • Leave authentication enabled for the next test.
    • Optional: The previous set of connectivity tests could be run in this mode as well to verify that the Username/Password authentication method works as well. This is a lower priority than the other three modes because this configuration is behaviorally very similar to the no authentication test, and should either connect or not connect.
  • SOCKS 5 Password Security The SOCKS 5 password should not be stored in cleartext.
    • Leave SOCKS 5 authentication enabled in the viewer from the previous test.
    • Close all running instances of the viewer.
    • Navigate to the user's Second Life settings directory.
    • Search, using grep or ctrl-f in notepad depending on the platform, for the username and password you used to connect to the SOCKS 5 server in the previous step in the settings.xml that corresponds to the viewer version you are testing with (settings.xml if using a release version, settings_development.xml if using a development build, etc).
    • Verify that the username and password do not appear in the settings files.
    • Start the viewer and disable authentication.

Pass/Fail Criteria

  • Passes if
    • No unexpected behaviors are observed
  • Fails if
    • Deviation from expected behavior is observed
    • A bug is detected that was not accounted for by this test plan
    • Performance degradation is observed when the proxy is disabled.
  • Known Issues
    • SLVoice does not support proxies, therefore voice is not expected to work when running the viewer behind a strict firewall that blocks the ports used for voice communication. If voice is enabled, an error message will appear when the viewer fails to connect to the voice server.

Tear Down

  • Disable all proxies in the viewer configuration.
  • Disable the built-in browser.
