Proxy configuration

Mondoo Client also works behind a forward proxy, such as Squid.

Set https_proxy environment variable
$env:https_proxy = "<ip-address>:<port>"

To set it for the Mondoo service, follow these steps:

  1. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Mondoo
  2. Create a REG_MULTI_SZ called Environment.
  3. Add this entry, substituting your IP address and port: https_proxy="<ip-address>:<port>"

Or create the registry entry using powershell:

reg add hklm\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Mondoo /v Environment /t REG_MULTI_SZ /d 'https_proxy="http://<ip-address>:<port>"'
