Configuring proxy settings

If server is being installed in the restricted environment there might be a need to configure proxy settings to let server establish required connections.

Note: proxy user and proxy password can only be configured for server launched using ZIP package.

To configure License Server to use proxy:


  • Stop License Server if it is running

  • For Linux and Mac OS X run:

<license_server_home>/bin/ configure --https.proxyHost <proxy_host> --http.proxyHost <proxy_host> --https.proxyPort <proxy_port> --http.proxyPort <proxy_port>

For Windows run:

<license_server_home>\bin\license-server.bat configure --https.proxyHost <proxy_host> --http.proxyHost <proxy_host> --https.proxyPort <proxy_port> --http.proxyPort <proxy_port>

where <proxy_host> is the host and <proxy_port> is the port of the proxy you want to use.

  • (Optional) If license server software is behind a proxy which requires authentication, please run:

<license_server_home>/bin/ configure --https.proxyUser <proxy_user> --http.proxyUser <proxy_user> --https.proxyPassword <proxy_password> --http.proxyPassword <proxy_password> for Linux and Mac OS X or

<license_server_home>\bin\license-server.bat configure --https.proxyUser <proxy_user> --http.proxyUser <proxy_user> --https.proxyPassword <proxy_password> --http.proxyPassword <proxy_password> for Windows

where <proxy_user> is the user and <proxy_password> is the password required by the proxy you want to use.

  • Start License Server


  1. Stop License Server if it is running

  2. Open C:\ProgramData\JetBrains\LicenseService\conf\LicenseService directory

  3. Copy license-server.jvmoptions.dist to license-server.jvmoptions

  4. Add -Dhttps.proxyHost=<proxy_host>, -Dhttps.proxyPort=<proxy_port>, -Dhttp.proxyHost=<proxy_host> and -Dhttp.proxyPort=<proxy_port> to the list of options in license-server.jvmoptions

  5. Save changes

  6. Start License Server

After these changes License Server will start using proxy for HTTP (port 80) and HTTPS (port 443) connections it needs to establish. Please pay attention - proxy_host should be entered without protocol prefixes (https or https) - just a domain name.
