    We're behind a proxy for Internet access, one is password controlled, the other just host and port.

    Please, please, please add some proxy configuration into the update process so I can just hit "Update now" in the help menu.

      OK,

      I set the environment variable with user:pass@myproxy.net and works fine.

      It is already working. Just set the environment variables HTTP_PROXY (and maybe FTP_PROXY) the used curl-library will use it already..
      Syntax is your "[yourproxy]:[port]" e.g.: HTTP_PROXY=yourproxy.com:8080

      Best Regards,

      Hi,

      I'm trying to update behind a proxy and i'm receiving the  following message:

      'It's not a valid GUP xml.'

      My proxy requires login & password but I don't know how configure it.

      Any suggestion?

      thanks

    Yes, but how do you specify the username and password for the proxy in this
    variable?
