Network Issues

I have 2 VMWare host (out of 4) that are not setup to use an external network. I can setup the vertical backup software and use it on a vmware host but b/c it can't connect to external network to verify license:

Failed to connect to the license server: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='vertical-portal.appspot.com', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /request_license (Caused by NewConnectionError(': Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 101] Network is unreachable',))

I can understand the need to check and verify license but not sure if I want to change the network settings or restart the server just to use the software. What are my options on servers that do not have outside connection?

It is possible for you to set up a proxy server on a machine with an internet connection but can also be accessed from these VMware hosts? If so, you can set the environment variable VB_LICENSE_PROXY to this proxy server:

export VB_LICENSE_PROXY=https://<proxy server address>
