  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • It is not possible to configure the HTTP Proxy to forward to
    another HTTP Proxy when using more than one negative hostname
    rule.
    
    For example, registration.xml contains the following:
    
    <proxy host="localhost" port="33128" useWhenStubbing="false"
    filter="~*company1.com"/>
    
    This correctly forwards all requests EXCEPT those ending in
    company1.com to the onward proxy.
    
    If registration.xml contains this:
    
    <proxy host="localhost" port="33128" useWhenStubbing="false"
    filter="~*company1.com|~*company2.com"/>
    
    This should pass everything except company1 & company2 to the
    onward proxy.
    
    This configuration causes all requests to be passed to the
    onward proxy.
