How do I set a proxy server to use for licensing?

To use a proxy server you will need to set environment variables, these can be system or user level.

There are 2 environment variables which must be set:

HTTP_PROXY - set to the hostname:port of the proxy server. For example, if your proxy server
is on port 8080 on host proxy_host:

setx HTTP_PROXY proxy_host:8080

HTTP_PROXY_CREDENTIALS - the username and password to authenticate you to the proxy
server, in the format user:password. For example, if your username is "joe" and password is

setx HTTP_PROXY_CREDENTIALS joe:joes_password

Note that Discover for ArcGIS Pro activation supports only the BASIC authentication type.
