This article describes how to license PGP Command Line through a proxy server.


If the Internet access of the system hosting PGP Command Line is via an HTTP proxy connection, you can still license your copy of PGP Command Line directly; you simply need to add the necessary proxy information.

Use --license-authorize to license PGP Command Line via a proxy server.

Example:

pgp --license-authorize --license-name "Alice Cameron" --license-organization "Example Corporation" --license-number "aaaaa-bbbbb-ccccc-ddddd-eeeee-fff" --proxy-server "proxyserver.example.com" --proxy-username "acameron" --proxy-passphrase 'a_cameron1492sailedblue' --license-email "[email protected]"

When authorizing a PGP Command Line license through a proxy server, the --proxy-server is required but the following options are only necessary when your proxy server requires authentication.

 

  • --proxy-username <Username> Where <Username> is a valid username on the proxy server.
  • --proxy-passphrase <Passphrase> Where <Passphrase> is the passphrase for the username you entered.
