Q100609: Licensing Modo 15 from behind a proxy or network security

SUMMARY
If you are connected to the internet behind network security or through a proxy server this may prevent our software from connecting to the Foundry systems to activate a license on your machine.  


Currently there is no way to enter your proxy settings via the license UI in Modo 15. In order to add an exception for Modo in your proxy you will need to do this outside of the application.


MORE INFORMATION

Website URL:
If your proxy server/ network security blocks all outgoing communication unless they are to allowed addresses then you should be able to activate your login-based license by adding the following address to the allowed list:

https://id.foundry.com/


Environment variables:

You can set your proxy information outside of Modo via environment variables. Please set the following environment variables on your machine, these map directly to Curl library settings:

FN_CURLOPT_PROXY maps to  CURLOPT_PROXY

see https://curl.se/libcurl/c/CURLOPT_PROXY.html 

 

FN_CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD maps to CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD

see https://curl.se/libcurl/c/CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD.html 

 

 

Examples:


FN_CURLOPT_PROXY

For a proxy called proxyserver.intranet, you would set the environment variable
FN_CURLOPT_PROXY to the server identifier:

proxyserver.intranet 

 

If the proxy requires a port number, it needs to be specified with a colon after the server identifier:


proxyserver.intranet:8900

 

FN_CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD

If the proxy requires a username and/or password then you will need to specify them with the environment variable FN_CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD, and set to:

[username]:[password]

 

The fields are optional, meaning that the username and/or the password can be specified. If only the password is required then it would be:

:[password]

 

Finally both fields need to be url encoded. So as an example, encoding of the @ sign:

clark%20kent:superman
