I'm using a proxy and the line we can find in the elasticsearch documentation to do my installation :

I do understand that there is an identification problem but I can't get where it comes from, I've used my ID and password as following (this is what I have found on other subjects) :

Other info :

Hi @Paul_Goluche,

Could you please check what authentication does scheme does your proxy require : Basic, Digest, NTLM etc.?

Also I would try with curl/wget to see if I can visit in verbose mode so the proxy settings work, just to verify credentials.

Thanks and Regards,

Have you considered just doing an offline install?
You can manually download x-pack and then install it from a local file.

Hi, my proxy requires a Http Basic authentification.
I can use elasticsearch with no problem using the curl and xget, xput. I have also been able to use kibana with no trouble.
I will try to provide you more info via the verbose mode this evening

Thanks and Regards,

I'm trying right now, but I would still like to understand the problem linked to the proxy so it doesn't happen again the day I can only install from a command line..
