    Hi all,

    Do AOS8 Mobility Conductors and Controllers support Proxy configuration for Internet access? (for retrieving licenses, software updates etc)

    I can't find any information in any of the Install, User, or Admin guides.

    AOS controller licenses typically are pasted in and software updates are hosted locally onsite.

    Thank Colin,

    That's what I typically do for both license management and software updates.

    But I have a large scale implementation that would benefit from the Conductors connecting to ASP automatically. I can probably get approval to bypass the proxy and go out direct - but would be nice if I could go via a Proxy (just like ClearPass).

    I'll put in a feature request if it's not available, but I'm guessing with the release of AOS10 - it won't get much traction.

    A local Aruba SE informed me that proxy config is available via the CLI only:

    (host) [mynode] (config) #web-proxy server arubaproxy.com port 8080​
