Setting up VMagine behind corporate proxy/firewall

I am trying to install v-magine on a machine that is behind a corporate firewall, all traffic must go out via a proxy server on our network.

And I am getting an error on the first install step and assuming this is why.

Is there any option to configure it to use a proxy server?

Thanks, Joel

If you can setup pfSense between your external virtual switch and your proxy you might be able to configure pfSense so traffic going through it doesn't need to know about a proxy .

Hi, to configure a proxy you need to specify it in the pxe config file. To do this:

  1. In the /v-magine/resources/ folder, edit pxelinux.template file
  2. At the last line, starting with append, add "proxy=http://[proxy server]:[port]"

If this does not work, there are two log files in the vmagine install folder. Can you provide me the v-magine.log file? Thank you.

Could you please also update you tool to "not" put passwords int he log file, or obfuscate them at least?

Do you have a DHCP server on the network your Windows host is? The CentOS VM is supposed to get an IP from DHCP on same network the host is.

Yes there is a DHCP server on the network.But its erroring in the UI, before i even type in any IP address information i get a popup in the UI saying "error" that i can click ok to. The same popup comes when when i get to the last step as well

Hi, so if I check the logs you sent me, I can see that the installer fails to get the CentOS mirrors: "ERROR logging error 1596 5220 AsyncLoopThread Failed to get list of CentOS mirrors" This happens early in the installer, on the first config page. So it seems the issue is indeed the proxy here.
