    Using a proxy with vSphere Client 5.0

    rolandsde Lurker

      Hi,

       

      I am using vSphere Client to connect to VMware Server, and it seems that the client does not use the proxy settings of Windows 7.

       

      I tried to use an automatic configuration script for proxy settings (wpad.dat file), or explicitly set the proxy to an IP address and port number in Windows. Neither of those settings worked. By checking the network traffic, we could see that the vSphere client always tried to contact the VMware server directly on port 443, and never tried to contact the proxy server.

       

      Is there a way to configure this behaviour? I can not see any configuration options in the file VpxClient.exe.config.

      Is anybody using a proxy for vSphere client?

       

      Thanks
