Linux/BSD/Unix Agent - How to enable proxy

Good to Know By default the Linux/BSD/Unix Agent will operate in non-proxy mode. The agent can be configured to use an HTTPS or HTTP proxy for internet access.

How to enable your proxy The agent can be configured in one of these ways:

1) /etc/sysconfig/qualys-cloud-agent - applicable for Cloud Agent on Linux/Unix (.rpm)

2) /etc/default/qualys-cloud-agent - applicable for Cloud Agent on Linux (.deb)

3) /etc/environment - applicable for Cloud Agent on Linux (.deb) and Linux/Unix (.rpm)

4) /usr/local/etc/qualys-cloud-agent - applicable for Cloud Agent on BSD (.txz)

Tip - Option 3) is a better choice for Linux/Unix if the systemwide proxy will be used by the agent.
