We have set up the VSTS agent in our internal network to work with a proxy to be able to connect to the visualstudio.com instance. We also defined a .proxybapass file in the root of the VSTS agent directory to ignore this proxy for certain addresses. The rules in this file are disregarded for the node.js task though apparently. I pasted an excerpt from the VSTS debug logs beneath. As you can see we’re still bouncing at the proxy server.
To rule out that node.js is the culprit I used the same call that the SonarQube plugin uses in a small JS program which I ran through a standalone node.js instance and this one worked like a charme. Side note: I had to set the environment variable NO_PROXY for this to work correctly or else I bounced at the proxy too. When running SonarQube plugin in the VSTS Agent context though this environment variable (NO_PROXY) is not used as the agent is exposing its own variables to access proxies.

The issue was first discussed on the VSTS issue tracker: https://github.com/Microsoft/vsts-agent/issues/1800
