Verifying Connectivity

The installer connects to the Internet through the system proxy settings in Windows. These settings can be found under Control Panel > Network and Internet > Internet Options. For Linux users, the installer uses Firefox browser proxy settings (when explicitly set) to determine connectivity.

If there are connectivity issues, verify the following:

  1. If you are using alternate proxy settings to the ones referred to, select the Manual Proxy Configuration option to specify the settings.
  2. Check whether your company firewall requires a proxy authentication with a user name and password. If so, select the Manual Proxy Configuration option in the dialog box above.
  3. For Linux users, if either the Use System settings or the Auto detect settings option is selected in the Firefox browser, you must manually set the proxy in installer.
