I work behind a very strict firewall but I am able to browse (most) of the internet just fine with FireFox and I.E., however there are specific proxy settings to have. Namely, an autoconfig *.pac link that gives the settings.
Anyway, I am trying to run some Maven through commandline/powershell and it requires downloading something. Now, the file it wants to download works fine in IE/Firefox (this) however in cmnd/pshell it times out. In fact, I can't even ping external sites using cmd/pshell.
So, I think I realized I need to make sure that when cmd/pshell sends a request over the internet, it at least utalizes the I.E. proxy settings. How can I ensure it is doing that?
