Configure the proxy server

You cannot contact Splunk Enterprise instances that are on networks that require proxy servers without setting up additional configurations. Add an environment variable to the computer that runs the Splunk Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) Driver.

If your network requires proxy servers on the computer running the Splunk ODBC Driver, add one of the following environment variable names, depending on the protocol of the management port:

  • https_proxy
  • http_proxy

The driver checks the environment variable that corresponds to the protocol of the management port. The variable's contents must be in the following format:

<protocol://><user:password@>proxy_machine<:port>

Within this string, protocol:// is ignored if present, and the optional :port number specifies the host's port on which the proxy operates. For more information, see Environment Variables in the libcurl documentation..
