I can't figure out if it is possible to use Cyberduck CLI (duck.exe) behind a proxy on windows. I can't view/edit Internet Explorer > Tools > Connections, because it is managed by admin.

I can set user environment variables, i'de like to be able to set the proxy with one of the following: 1) User env variables: "https_proxy", "http_proxy", "ftp_proxy", as: "http://USERNAME:PASSWORD@server:port" 2) Alternatively a config file with these same keys: eg "https_proxy=http://USERNAME:PASSWORD@server:port" 3) Alternatively as part of the command line. This is how some other programs do it, wget supports all 3 options.

I understand all 3 are not secure, but if there is not other option then that that is users call.

duck.exe 6.4.6
