I have the following a bit unusual challenge:

1. I can access, from a browser,

2. When I open this link first time (assume cold start browser), my proxy first places a cookie on my PC, then it retrieves my ARIS Connect html from

Then, I can download the "Initial JAR" for the fat client (ARIS Architect) via the browser - no problem

I start the Initial JAR, but:

The Initial JAR attempts to download the client from Since the proxy on first call needs to place a cookie at my computer, the first file received (should be a ZIP containing the client) is actually replaced by the cookie that the proxy provides. Subsequent downloaded files pass through the proxy fine.

So, the question becomes: Is there any way I can get make the "Initial Jar" handle the situation where the first call to ARIS server returns a cookie from the proxy, rather than a file? My current guesses are that the following approaches are feasible:

1. Switch to the Connect Editor - scrap the Java fat client

2. Perform a complete local installation of fat client, and then convince the local fat client to handle that first cookie from the proxy

3. Avoid the proxy by some VPN tricks

4 or: Is there a way that Is there any way I can get make the "Initial Jar" handle the situation where the first call to ARIS server returns a cookie from the proxy, rather than a file?

NB: The proxy 'is a http/https proxy'. It is not a firewall, Netscaler or similar.

you've got options 1 to 3, 4 is not possible.

The start of the downloader is completely independent from the access to the portal.

Thanks Frank!

Any advice on what locally installed Java-file to start, that attempts to just start the Client - not download any client-files from the server?

if I get it right, you just downloaded the from the server, extracted it on your local disk and you want to have e.g. just a batch file or so to start the client?

That won't be possible, because many file are packed to reduce download size. The downloader jar has the task the extract this, so you you would need to do this on your own.
