This technical note describes how to configure web proxies for CMSIS-Pack installation in IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm. This is must be done if the environment requires a proxy to access packs remotely.
The current CMSIS-Pack installer cannot use the operating systems proxy configuration, and requires that you add this information manually to the eclipse.ini file. This file is normally installed in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\IAR Systems\Embedded Workbench 8.0\common\CMSIS-Manager
Proxy hosts and ports configuration can be added after the lines:
The available options are:
-Dhttp.proxyHost= (default: <none>)
The hostname, or address, of the proxy server.
-Dhttp.proxyPort= (default: 80)
The port number of the proxy server.
-Dhttp.nonProxyHost= (default: localhost|127.*|[::1])
Indicates the hosts that should be accessed without going through the proxy. Typically this defines internal hosts. The value of this property is a list of hosts, separated by the | (pipe) character. In addition, the wildcard character * can be used for pattern matching.
For example, this line
indicates that every host in the foo.com domain and the localhost should be accessed directly, even if a proxy server is specified.
The default value excludes all common variations of the loopback address.
-Dhttps.proxyHost= (default: <none>)
-Dhttps.proxyPort= (default: 443)
-Dhttps.nonProxyHost= The HTTPS protocol handler will use the same nonProxyHosts property as the HTTP protocol
Notice that the property java.net.useSystemProxies has no effect.
The CMSIS-Pack installer does not use the operating system’s normal proxy settings. If a proxy is needed, it requires manual configuration of the eclipse.ini file.
