Configuring CxConsole to Use a Proxy

If your network requires a proxy to connect to the CxSAST server, you have to configure CxConsole as follows:

  1. Open the following file for editing:


  2. Locate the following line:

    java -jar CxConsolePlugin-CLI-9.00.2.jar %*

  3. Change that line to the following:

    java -Xmx1024m -Dhttp.proxyHost=<proxy server>-Dhttp.proxyPort=<port>-DsocksProxyHost=<proxy server>-jar CxConsolePlugin-CLI-9.00.2.jar %*

    <proxy server> - IP address or resolvable name of your network proxy server

    <port> - Port at which the proxy server is listening,

    for example java -Xmx1024m -Dhttp.proxyHost= -Dhttp.proxyPort=808 -DsocksProxyHost= -jar CxConsolePlugin-CLI-9.00.2.jar %*


We recommend that, rather than edit our script every time an update is required, setting the following in the global environment, or before calling the script:

  • Linux - export JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS="-Dhttp.proxyHost=http-proxy -Dhttp.proxyPort=3128 -DproxySet=true"

  • Windows - set JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS="-Dhttp.proxyHost=http-proxy -Dhttp.proxyPort=3128 -DproxySet=true"

For additional information on connecting via a proxy from a Java command, refer to Java Networking and Proxies at the Oracle website.
