Answer

Run the  >options autosupport command to view your current configuration

  • The autosupport.support.proxy option allows the setting of an HTTP-based proxy if autosupport.support.transport is HTTPS or HTTP.
  • The default for this option is the empty string, implying no proxy is necessary.
  • Both IPv6 and IPv4 addresses are accepted.
You use this option to specify user name and password for proxy authentication. The URL is entered without an http:// or https:// prefix. The following are some examples:
  • options autosupport.support.proxy myusername:mypassword@myhost.com
  • options autosupport.support.proxy myusername:mypassword@myhost.com:9090
  • options autosupport.support.proxy myhost.com
  • options autosupport.support.proxy myhost.com:9090
 
Note: Proxy configuration defaults to port 3128 when no port is specified.
  • There are many possible combinations that can be used, including HTTP arguments and CGI invocations. Contact your IT department for the correct HTTP proxy syntax.
