SSPR does not receive updates through the online update channel when proxy server is used
Proxy settings configured in SSPR Configuration Editor are ignored by the SSPR Appliance
Online updates to SSPR settings fail with proxy settings configured through Settings->application->application->HTTP Proxy 


Configure proxy settings for the SSPR Appliance on the server console.  

Type "yast2"  (without quotes), select Network Services, and then Proxy.

You can also access the server via SSH.  Make sure SSH is running as shown in "System Services" in the SSPR Appliance console (https://SSPRserver:9443).  Access the SSPR appliance server via ssh, and set proxy settings in yast2->Network Services->Proxy as shown in the example below:

Additional Information

The Online Update feature is at the "appliance" layer (ie: port:9443), rather than the "sspr application" layer.  Hence, the proxy setting found in SSPR Configuration Manager under Settings->application->application->HTTP Proxy will have no effect on the Online Update feature.
