Containers Internet Connectivity RRS feed

  • Question

  • There seems to be a problem with Proxy usage. Container Host has Network/Internet Connectivity.

    In Container Host, both HKCU\... and HKLM\... hold correct registry values and data for ProxyServer and ProxyEnabled in "Internet Settings", but if I try to download something from the internet (intranet works) from inside the Containers it does not work.

    Tested with wget and several other scripts and "online"-installers. wget -Proxy works inside the Container, but this does not help me with my scripts and installers.

    Tried following commands inside the container:

    netsh winhttp set proxy <proxy>

    reg add HKCU\...\Internet Settings (same values and data as above in the Container Host) and also in HKLM


    all three options didn't help. The registry approach seemed to produce odd results.. If I do a reg query on the key my previous changes don't get reflected - but if I do a second (similar) reg add on a (non-showing but existing) value it prompts for overwrite confirmation.

    Can someone reproduce the Proxy behaviour inside containers (and corporate environment+proxy) also? I found another thread where the Proxy problem is mentioned but could not find a solution here...
