Server management tools gateway with a proxy RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    this is the third forum i'm asking the same question.

    -----------------------------------------
    I have a NanoServer on-premise I like to Manager with 
     Server management tools from Azure. For that i need a Gateway Server. This Gateway Server is in our local Network. It has Internet Access. I generated a Package in the Gateway Configuration of the Server management tools homepage in azure. After the installation of this package on the gateway server i should have a connection to the azure Server management tools. because this was not working, i checked our firewall logs and saw that the connection from the gateway to the internet was blocked because it tries to connect directly to the internet and not over our proxy. I configured the proxy settings in IE.

    my question is, how can i configure the gateway service to use our proxy with authentication?

  • Hello,

    Based on the scenario you described, I set up the similar environment in the lab. On the machine with Gateway deployed, I configured the system wide proxy settings, which is useful for applications that do not explicitly support setting a proxy.  

    By tracing the packets, I found the traffic is still sent out without going through the proxy. 

    Since I can't find the explicit statement for supporting proxy with Gateway, and the trace indicates that the Gateway doesn't use the windows proxy configuration, I recommend to submit a request for supporting proxy by clicking the link below.

    For how to configure the system wide proxy settings, please refer to the followings.

    1. Load the proxy settings from IE manually using following commands in PowerShell.
    netsh winhttp import proxy source=ie

    2. If the proxy server needs authentication, please also execute the followings.

     $webclient=New-Object System.Net.WebClient
     $creds=Get-Credential
     $webclient.Proxy.Credentials=$creds
