PCM2.0 updates and proxy server

We have just installed a new Proxy server into our network, which requires NT Authentication for web access.

The automatic updates have now stopped on our PCM2.0+ server.

Can anyone tell me what user account is used to establish the connection to the update website, Or if not, What the url/Domain is of where PCM looks for its updates, That way i can try and bypass authentication for that domain,

Many thanks,

Re: PCM2.0 updates and proxy server

Hi,

Thanks for the reply, I have tried this and it still is unable to update.
I tried it with a variety of accounts but none of them worked.

I have spoken to the proxy manufacturerand they have advised me to bypass the proxy for the update domain, So i just need to find out where the box is looking to inorder to get the updates.

I have tried bypassing for hp.com but this hasn't worked either,

Cheers

Hi Jonathan,

PCM is looking for updates on ftp.hp.com in the pub\networking\software directory using anonymous access.

Hi,

Putting ftp.hp.com appears to have done the trick, i have set the proxy to bypass authentication for that domain and now it is ok,

Cheers Guys

Placing ftp.hp.com in bypass proxy authentication box solved issue.
