Connecting through a Proxy to home.mycroft.ai

Hi there.

I need to connect my picroft through a proxy.

Do I need to take anything other into account, or can I just use http_proxy / https_proxy variables on my pi?

Thank you.

I haven’t tried this myself but that should be all you need. Requests (the http-module) uses the standard HTTP_PROXY, HTTPS_PROXY environment variables.

Let me know if there’s any issues and I’ll try help.

Thank you. Will definitely give this a try.

Long time since last answer but I have a bit of an update on this:

Apparently the following is needed:

export http_proxy=http://proxy_hostname.com:proxy_port
export https_port=http://proxy_hostname.com:proxy_port
export no_proxy="localhost,127.0.0.1,localaddress,.localdomain.com,0.0.0.0"
