Proxy Settings Overview

The feko_update_gui utility and feko_update utility (GUI and command line) use the system proxy by default, although it may be changed or the use of a proxy suppressed.


The proxy used is the same as is used by Internet Explorer. The proxy can be specified or by using a proxy auto-config (PAC) file.


The system proxy is defined by the environment variable http_proxy. If the environment variable http_proxy is not defined, then no proxy will be used.

Suppressing the Use of a Proxy

The parameter --no-proxy bypasses the system settings and use a direct connection.
