Access file on hdfs via proxy

Rising Star

I need to read files on hdfs which is distributed on another network, where I can access it via proxy.

Now I can access the directories, files status via WebHDFS by specific port successfully. However when I try to read the file content, it redirects me to another data node url, while I only have access to name node.

So how can I read the file in a convenient way?

Solve by using HttpFs.

It set a gateway where no need to access data node.
