I'm struggling to set up Rancher desktop on Windows behind a corporate Proxy which requires authentication. Currently, k3s Bootstrapping fails with
Fetching releases from <> -> AuthorizedOnly
I figured out a way to establish connectivity on other WSL distros: On the windows host, there is a local Proxy server running on port 8887, and I have a shell script which determines the right Network Interface and IP Addresses and sets the variables HTTP_PROXY, HTTPS_PROXY and NO_PROXY accordingly to route all traffic from the wsl guest machine through this local proxy server which cares for Authentication. This works fine with and without VPN in our corporate network and from remote work locations. Now, I would like to: *let Rancher Desktop (Windows executables) point to localhost:8887 as proxy Server *let Rancher WSL Distros set HTTPS_PROXY, HTTP_PROXY, NO_PROXY via that shell script which picks the right network interface to determine the current IP Address How could this be achieved?
