Rapidanalytics Proxy Settings

my RA Server runs in an internal network but needs/can get outside access via a proxy.

But I am wondering what are the correct settings (in the RA gui) to apply for this to work.

I tried:
ftp.proxyHost = proxy.server.at
ftp.proxyPort = proxy.server.at
ftp.proxySet = true

http.proxyHost = proxy.server.at
http.proxyPort = proxy.server.at
http.proxySet = true

https.proxyHost = proxy.server.at
https.proxyPort = proxy.server.at
https.proxySet = true

socksProxyHost = proxy.server.at
socksProxyPort = proxy.server.at

in several variations (without socks and empty string instead of "true") but neither seems to work.

Also modifying the run.config with the -DproxySet=true -DproxyHost=.. creates an "infinite memory leak" situation in my setup.

So what is the correct way to this?

    So I looked source for the RapidMiner.Init method, my property names seem correct.

    But still did anybody use RA behind a proxy and got outside? I am trying to use RM for a project that might be getting a lot bigger but without outside access the usability is greatly/nearby fataly reduced.

    the settings are the same as in RapidMiner. So when RapidMiner can connect to the outside world via Proxy, the same settings should work for RapidAnalytics.
    However the settings need to be added to the Java launch options, otherwise they will not work.

    Once the correct settings are known, you need to edit the configuration file in the RapidAnalytics folder.

       On Windows, edit the file bin\run.conf.bat. The last line should read


       Before that line, add two lines saying

       set JAVA_OPTS="%JAVA_OPTS% -Dhttp.proxySet=true -Dhttp.proxyHost=host -Dhttp.proxyUsername=user -Dhttp.proxyPassword=password"
       set JAVA_OPTS="%JAVA_OPTS% -Dhttps.proxySet=true -Dhttps.proxyHost=host -Dhttps.proxyUsername=user -Dhttps.proxyPassword=password"

       On Linux and Unix, you should edit the file bin/run.conf. At the end, add two lines

       JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Dhttp.proxySet=true -Dhttp.proxyHost=host -Dhttp.proxyUsername=user -Dhttp.proxyPassword=password"
       JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Dhttps.proxySet=true -Dhttps.proxyHost=host -Dhttps.proxyUsername=user -Dhttps.proxyPassword=password"
