I am behind an internet proxy with username and password. The installer cannot download updates because it doesn't ask for user/pass.

How to repeat:
try to execute installer behind a proxy with username and password authentication

Are you tried setting IE Internet Options (Local Area Network (LAN) Settings) checking Use a proxy server...?. Thanks.
[18 Feb 2013 14:49] Bruno Baena
Everything is set. The problem is that the proxy requires a username and password, which are changed quarterly.

Verified this now. I setup my browsers, etc to go through squid and ask for basic authentication which works.  But not in installation...

Over 3 years since bug submitted, still can't execute check for community updates behind a proxy with authentication.

Proxy (with authentication) is still not supported. Hence, MySQL Installer cannot be used behind a corporate firewall.

Are there any plans to support it?
