  2. If you come across an issue where the log says the "PKIX path building failed" or "unable to find valid certification path to requested target", the page here will help you solve your issue - SSL Errors - PXIX path building failed - How to import certificate into JRE/JDK

  5. Along with setting up the proxy on the Node machine, you also need to ensure the login for which this proxy is being setup is the same as the one used to run the AIP Node services. 
  6. If you are using the extend service, make sure the port is configured correctly in the Public URL field in the Config.json file in Offline Extend installation path
