I am sitting behind a company proxy. To start vagrant i had to use

set HTTP_proxy=

i tryed using netsh winhttp but that didn't work. So now my command line uses the proxy, but now it also uses it for localhost /

Is there a way to bypass the proxy?

I already tryed setting no_proxy like this

set no_proxy=localhost;127.0.0.*

Is your proxy properly configured in Internet Explorer? – Daniel B Apr 11 '14 at 7:56
@DanielB Yes it is and i tried netsh winhttp import proxy source=ie as well. – Andresch Serj Apr 11 '14 at 7:57
I guess that would've been too easy. Still, I believe setting the WinHTTP proxy isn't going to help either. Instead, you might want to take a look at vagrant-proxyconf. – Daniel B Apr 11 '14 at 8:01
been there, done that: vagrant-proxyconf is configured and works, otherwise i wouldn't be able to get to the point where i can not connect to the VM in the first place :( – Andresch Serj Apr 11 '14 at 8:06
