Unable to access upgrade behind proxy



  • I am using

    2.3-RELEASE (amd64)
    built on Mon Apr 11 18:10:34 CDT 2016
    FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE

    Something that I have never gotten to work is to set the proxy in System -> Advanced -> Miscellaneous -> Proxy URL and Proxy Port and enable pfSense to access the update status nor the System -> Update.

    The hostname and port that I set work successfully everywhere else (including on the LAN behind the pfSense NAT) but not for pfSense itself.

    Any suggestions on how to debug this?
