I'm using google earth on a Linux. I need to go through a proxy to get to the internet so I start google-earth like this
export http_proxy=http://myproxy google-earth
And it works fine. However, I need need to pull a KML file from a server on an internal network that I cannot access through this proxy. This example is similar. When I then open the KML file that says 'pull from this server,' google-earth cannot find the server. If I start google-earth without setting
http_proxy I can access the server but not the internet (so I can't pull google-earth data)
From what I've found I can't tell google-earth when to use the proxy selectively. The only solution I can think of is to forward a port that isn't 80, however I would like to avoid this if possible.
It seems that google-earth ignores the
no_proxy environmental variable.
