Deploy OVA/OVF from URL behind a proxy

Hello,

I have vSphere 6.7 deployment and in the whole environment I need to use a proxy server for all HTTPS requests.

If I try to deploy an OVA using a URL directly from a location on the internet if it fails like this:

How do I properly configure my vSphere setup so that it downloads the OVA via the proxy? Is this even possible? I have the proxy config on my VCSA and I am not aware of any proxy setting on the ESXi.

BTW, this URL is just a random publicly downloadable OVA for testing.

This https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/81565 has worked for me.

It is important to also add the esxi hosts to the exclusion
