Linux Cloud Agent Proxy Configuration

Question asked by Cyrille Brahamcha Employee on Oct 20, 2016

Hi all,


In case of the installation of the Cloud Agent on a Linux server, the documentation writes this about Proxy configuration :

If the proxy is specified with the https_proxy environment variable, it will be used for all commands performed by the Cloud Agent. If the proxy is specified with the qualys_https_proxy environment variable, it will only be used by the Cloud Agent to communicate with our cloud platform.


What is the meaning of this sentence ? Does this mean that the agent connects through the proxy to something other than the platform ?


Best regards,
