How to Configure a VM Proxy

The VM makes a web request to a licensing server via cURL. In some networks, all cURL requests are proxied. The below directions allow a user to configure the VM to create license requests through a proxy. This configuration does not affect their host computer in anyway.

Steps

After installing the VM, log into the VM with the system user then run the following commands:

sudo vi /etc/environment

Then add to this file:

HTTP_PROXY="#{proxy-address}:#{proxy-port}"

#{proxy-address} is the IP or hostname for the proxy server

#{proxy-port} is the port number for the proxy server


Final Steps

Restart the VM:

sudo shutdown r now

Once the VM is started, sign in and upload the license.
