This article details how to authenticate a Modo 11 login-based license from behind a proxy server and how to get this to work if your proxy server has SSL interception.
If your connection to the internet is through a proxy server then by default this may prevent Modo from connecting to the Foundry website to activate a license on your machine. You can enter your proxy server details on the Advanced Options on the Modo Licensing dialog.
After you enter your proxy details, click on "Back" and then enter your login details as detailed in the following article: Q100283: How to activate a Login-based license for Modo
Proxy Servers with SSL Interception
If your proxy server has SSL interception then Modo will fail to get a license and return "CURL error: (35) SSL connect error" as an error message. We are working on a proper solution to this but for now (Modo 11.0v3) you can work around this by copying your own proxy certificate file over the one in Modo's install folder.
The file to replace is the "ca-bundle.crt" within the Resources or resc directory of the Modo install. The default location for these file is:
- MacOS: /Applications/Modo11.0v3.app/Contents/Resources/ca-bundle.crt
- Windows: C:\Program Files\Luxology\modo\11.0v3\resrc\ca-bundle.crt
You should then be able to activate Modo 11 after supplying your proxy server details.
