Using TYK behind a proxy

I’m following the tutorial available on the docs, but I’m getting a problem with just the last step “Test it”. The error I get is:

[Apr 19 16:46:23] ERROR http: proxy error: dial tcp: lookup on [::1]:53: read udp [::1]:49843->[::1]:53: read: connection refused

I think it’s due to that tyk is behind a proxy, how can I tell tyk the proxy address?

Tyk doesn’t support proxies I’m afraid, it needs unfettered access.

I tried in a network without the proxy, but the problem still keeps alive :-/

Can the VM see out onto the net? Can you curl

Yes, I launched curl and I got back an HTML page

Very odd - a connection refused error implies the connection is not allowed to leave - is there a firewall in place?

I have just deleted all network configurations and now it works…mah…
