vmware or vbox install: behind Forefront TMG proxy.

I am using export proxy statements in a try to get proxy to work but TMG proxy not only requires address and port but Server-name, username and password. I have TMG proxy set on my PC and it's working.
After exporting proxy i get this on 'pacman -Syy' statement.

The requested URL returned error: 407 Proxy Authentication Required (Forefront TMG requires authorization to fulfill the request. Access to Web Proxy filter is denied)

Is there anything i can do to get it to work. How can i set the virtual machines network interface to use my current Proxy settings

i have no access to TMG config. Also i tried all network options in both Vbox and VMware.

You got a tricky problem, these links may help to get a better understanding of what needs to be done :

Do you only need internet access from the VM for pacman ?
If so, a local mirror setup on the host would be  a workaround.
Edit :
pacman can use wget as transfer command, and wget can be configured to work with  a proxy.
check the wiki on wget.
end of edit

Getting full internet access for the VM will be much trickier.
An approach that might work is to configure the VM to use the TMG proxy on your host pc as gateway for the VM.
The TGM proxy on the host would then take care of the authentication.

Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: vmware or vbox install: behind Forefront TMG proxy.

the only other way i see is install Arch on vm outside network and import it back.
but then again i have to access internet. there is a package in AUR called "CNTLM" i think this will solve my problem afterwards.
