Doc Type: Known Issue
Doc Text:
The option to register using a proxy server has been removed along with the removal of Red Hat network (RHN) registration support from the firstboot tool in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.0 Beta. As a consequence, if the proxy settings is required during registration using the Subscription Manager utility, the installation cannot finish successfully. To work around this problem, skip the registration procedure in Subscription Manager during the firstboot stage and open the Subscription Manager GUI, which allows you to set the proxy server followed by registration using the Red Hat Subscription Manager (RHSM).

Looks like the logic for deciding when to show the proxy info isn't quite right.
For 9ebbf0b4b2aaf8cfc3c5f416d2c6640566a8e253 (, 1.10.4) we only show our proxy config infomation if the system doesn't have any rhn config (ie, no rhn-client-tools installed).

That's not really correct, since you could have that installed, even if it's not actually needed by us or firstboot anymore. Code needs to figure out there are no rhn modules in firstboot (as on rhel7) and show the proxy config, and for rhel6, where there are rhn modules, to use the proxy info from the rhn screens.

    1020539: Show proxy info if no RHN in firstboot
    Previously, we used the http proxy info collected
    in the RHN firstboot screens. If we are standalone
    without those modules, show our proxy screen instead.
