Summary

When you set FlcCommSetProxyAutoDetect to True, where does it get the proxy settings from?

Question

Where does FlcCommSetProxyAutoDetect gets proxy settings from? Per p247 of the 2016 R2 FlexNet_C_XT_API.pdf:

6.28.3.10 FlcBool FlcCommSetProxyAutoDetect (FlcCommRef comm, FlcBool proxyAutoDetect, FlcErrorRef error)

Sets communications proxy auto-detect flag value.

Parameters:
comm: Communications object
proxyAutoDetect: Proxy auto-detect flag value
error Error: object to be filled with error information in the case of failure

Returns:
FLC_TRUE on success, FLC_FALSE on error (see error for additional error info)

You've tried setting it to true, but it doesn't work with your proxy settings, so the main question is what does this function do and how does it do it? Is there information available about what this function is trying to use from the system?

Answer

The FlcCommSetProxyAutoDetect (FlcCommRef comm, FlcBool proxyAutoDetect, FlcErrorRef error) API detects the proxy internet protocol (IP) and port from local area network (LAN) settings; Proxy Server option set at Internet Explorer (IE). Please refer the attached screenshot ?IE.jpg?

When the proxyAutoDetect value is set to FLC_TRUE, the values will be picked from the LAN settings proxy server. So when a client sends a request to the server, the request will be routed through the proxy server IP and port value specified in the browser. The response should be served successfully from the server if the proxy server is up and running. Note the proxy server may be a squid or any other server.
