The following rules apply if you’re installing Dynatrace OneAgent or Security Gateway.
The Windows installer allows you to enter a proxy address during installation, so in the majority of cases you don’t need to worry about adding extra command line parameters. Command line parameters are particularly useful when you’re deploying a Group Policy installation or other types of automated tasks.
On both Windows and Linux the installer recognizes the
PROXY parameter. The value of this parameter is the proxy server address. Add the port number following a colon, for example
22.214.171.124:8080. For an authenticating proxy you can specify username and password like this ´username:firstname.lastname@example.org:8080´ where both username and password need to be url encoded. We also support IPv6 addresses.
Parameter names are case sensitive, so use
ALL CAPS for parameter names.

/tmp and your proxy IP address is 10.1.1.5. In such a scenario you would begin the installation like this:
On Windows, use the command line and type:
Auto-detect proxy settings
To enable detection of global proxy settings during installation, type
auto as the
PROXY parameter value. On a Linux server for example, you would type:
