Packages could not be installed when Internet only accessible over Proxy in LAN
Software 2.1.5, nanoBSD, 1GB , ALIX
WAN: extern (no Internet Access)
LAN: internal Network (no direct Internet Access)
Intwernet accessible over Proxy in LAN Segment (on another Box)
I've set the settings for Proxy Access in %boxip%/system_advanced_misc.php.
Firmware Update works w/o problems.
Package List is not available, no package download/install possible.
I think the routine for package updates don't use the Proxy Settings.
Are you sure the package server is not down?
I've been seeing this all morning:
Nov 7 09:02:34 pfsense php-fpm: /pkg_mgr.php: XML_RPC_Client: Connection to RPC server packages.pfsense.org:443 failed. Operation timed out 103
Nov 7 09:02:34 pfsense php-fpm: /pkg_mgr.php: XMLRPC communication error: Operation timed out
Yet packages.pfsense.org is reachable and responds to pings
The proxy setting for packages broke when we switched to HTTPS, that's since been fixed in 2.2. It hasn't been down at all.
