How to set a proxy for ESXi 6.7?

Hi, If you set a proxy for your vCenter version , and it is not working, this post is fit for you.

Today I configured a proxy from UI for vCenter version, but it is not working.

1- login to VAMI.


Login as a root user.

2- Networking –> Proxy Settings

{This configured not working}.

What is a solution?

It has a trick.

3- Login to VAMI with SSH client like putty.

4- vi this file


5- Put your proxy address in this file

# You can set the default proxies for Wget to use for http, https, and ftp.
# They will override the value in the environment.
https_proxy = https://proxy_address:port/
http_proxy = http://proxy_address:port/

Finish 🙂
