Qt unified installer behind proxy with AV

  • Hi everyone,

    for a long time now i used the online installer to download and update the open source version of qt and creator behind our companys proxy. Lately we got a new proxy and the download of the meta.7z files now causes an icap error because of our anti virus unable to decompress the files. Download through https is working, as the proxy does not break the encrypted connection.

    Now my question: Is it possible to instruct the online installer to download through https only?

    I tried to add all the repositories with the command line switch --setTempRepository with https, but the installer is still adding the http repositories.

    P.S.: I already argued with our admins to exclude from av scan, but no chance.

    Thanks in advance

    That's something you should rather bring to the interest mailing list. You'll find there Qt's developers/maintainers. This forum is more user oriented.

  • Solved quick and dirty.
    Using QSdkReproChooser and adjusting _rootUrl = ""; (many other mirrows do not support https) in Downloader::useMirrow. Also copy libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll to QSdkReproChooser exe-dir for https QNetworkRequest and CONFIG += openssl-linked
