When using a Proxy Server in the environment, valid credentials need to be entered on the /etc/liveupdate.conf file of the SAVFL client
Configure proxy settings for Java LiveUpdate (JLU) by changing the following line in the /etc/liveupdate.conf file: proxy=proxy.yourcompany.com:port To use authentication, you can also edit the following proxyusername and proxypassword lines: proxyusername=MyCompany_user_name proxypassword=MyCompany_password An example of this file including the proxy information:
hosts/0/url=http://liveupdate.symantecliveupdate.com:80 hosts/1/url=http://liveupdate.symantec.com:80 workdir=/tmp logfile=/opt/Symantec/LiveUpdate/liveupdt.log proxy=10.0.0.XXX:3128 proxyusername=MyCompany_user_name proxypassword=MyCompany_password
