I know this question may seem silly to some, but it's been awhile since I've taken a look at OBIEE. I downloaded the virtual box tool and following everything in the deployment guide up until the SampleApp setup and configuration. The directions say to configure the local Mozilla browser correctly, I must go to 'connection settings' under preferences and select 'Direction Connection to the internet' and then save those settings. There is no such option available. The only options available are the following:
1) No proxy
2) auto-detect proxing settings for this network (default selction)
3) Use system proxy settings
4) Manual proxy configuration
Let me know if a screenshot is needed for this. Thanks for your patience and help.
