I have a Windows server running an agent which sits behind a proxy that requires username and password authentication. When I perform a "puppet agent -t" run, I am am getting 407 Proxy Authentication errors.

However, if I configure the agent to use a proxy that doesn't require authentication I get a successful run.

I am try to find out if proxy authentication is supported in the Windows client/agent.

Here is the configuration I am using:

Puppet Client v3.8.2

Puppet Config:





masterport = 443

ca_server =

stringify_facts = false

pluginsync_facts = true


httpproxyhost =

httpproxyport = 8080

httpproxyuser = proxyuser

httpproxypassword = proxypassword

report = true

certificate_revocation = false

Thank you for any help provided.

Response from PuppetLabs:

I dug into this a bit and found out that those settings are intended to route all HTTP traffic through the proxy, however there is an outstanding issue with authenticated proxies. The ticket is here:
