Known to apply to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s)
Sophos Central Sophos Central Managed Endpoint Sophos Home UTM Managed Endpoint (Windows 2000+)
The following sections are covered:
Sophos Central users will need to configure both the Windows Endpoints and Servers listed in Sophos Central Admin.
netsh winhttp import proxy source =ie
netsh winhttp set proxy proxy-server="http=proxy server address:proxy port;https=proxy server address:proxy port"
Note: Systems using transparent proxy servers may also need to be configured with this method.
Note: This may require the Show hidden files option to be turned on in Windows.
For proxies that require authentication, or if you still have errors after entering the proxy server settings, add the following domains and the server address to the Bypass proxy settings for these Hosts & Domains field (as explained in the Apple article): *.sophos.com *.sophosupd.com *.sophosupd.net *.sophosxl.net ocsp2.globalsign.com crl.globalsign.com
export http_proxy=http://proxy server address:proxy port
export ftp_proxy=http://proxy server address:proxy port
export http_proxy=http://username:password@:proxy server address:proxy port
export http_proxy=http://proxy server address:proxy port export ftp_proxy=http://proxy server address:proxy port
