Hi jasmine,

Set the fetchmode property of your URL iView to server side. This means whatever internet activity required happens from server side. So your machine which dosent have internet connection, connects to the internet via the server.

Hope it helps

Hi Jasmine,

You could use the Fetch Mode "Server-Side" on your URL iview - see

If the EP server uses a proxy to connect to the internet, also set the system properties for the proxy server -

Jane's approach is fine.

Be aware though, that with server side-fetching you will be unable to do any navigation in the URl iview (e.g. clicking on URLs). These will always be fetched from your local PC.

You cannot change this behaviour, it's simply a missing feature of SAP EP (and not trivial to implement ...)
