    ****************************************************************
    RSA 7.x Clients are unable to talk to the License Server
    when hte Client machine is configured to use a HTTP Proxy
    Server for communication. The root cause is the use of Java
    Clinet libraries of FLEX by RSA. The FLEX Java does not
    support HTTP Proxy Server communication.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Once the RSA Clients start using 8.1.1.x RCL Java Client
    libraries, the issue will no longer exist. The RCL Java
    Client Libraries use native RCL C Client Libraries for
    Licensiing operations. RCL C clients talk to the RLKS 8.1.x
    using TCP/IP protocol. They will ignore HTTP Proxy settings
    and hence will be able to contact the server successfully.
