During Java installation error pops up saying:
The installer cannot proceed with the current Internet Connection proxy settings.


There are two possible reasons why you are experiencing this error:
  • Currently, the online installation program does not support authenticated proxy. If you are behind an authenticated proxy server, you will get this error message.
  • You will get this error if you require a proxy server and the proxy server information has not been specified in your browser.


There are two solutions to resolve this issue.
  1. You can use Windows Offline installation
  2. Specify the proxy server information in your browser.
Windows Offline Installation
