If your curl is at least version 7. 19. 4, you could just use the –noproxy flag.
curl –noproxy ‘*’
From the manual.

I ran into the same problem because I set the _proxy and _proxy environment variables. But occasionally, I connect to a different network and need to bypass the proxy temporarily. The easiest way to do this (without changing the environment variables) is:
From the manual: “The only wildcard is a single * character, which matches all hosts, and effectively disables the proxy. ”
The * character is quoted so that it is not erroneously expanded by the shell.

I assume curl is reading the proxy address from the environment variable _proxy and that the variable should keep its value. Then in a shell like bash, export _proxy=”; before a command (or in a shell script) would temporarily change its value.
(See curl’s manual for all the variables it looks at, under the ENVIRONMENT heading. )

Add your proxy preferences into
proxy = 1. 2. 3. 4
noproxy =, localhost, 127. 0. 1
This make all dev domains and local machine request ignore the proxy.

Long shot but try setting the proxy to “” (empty string) that should override any proxy settings according to the man page.

First, I listed the current proxy setting with
env | sort | less
(should be something like _proxy= number)
Then I tried setting
export _proxy=”;”
which gave this error message:
curl: (5) Couldn’t resolve proxy ‘;’
Tried
export _proxy=”” && curl servername:portnumber/destinationpath/ -d 55
and it worked!
PS! Remember to set -proxy back to its original settings with
export _proxy= number

I have _proxy and _proxy are defined. I don’t want to unset and set again those environments but –noproxy ‘*’ works perfectly for me.
curl –noproxy ‘*’ -XGET 172. 17. 2:9200

“status”: 200,

“cluster_name”: “elasticsearch”,

In my case (macos, curl 7. 54. 0), I have below proxy set with ~/. bash_profile
$ env |grep -i proxy |cut -d = -f1|sort
FTP_PROXY
HTTPS_PROXY
HTTP_PROXY
NO_PROXY
PROXY
ftp_proxy
_proxy
no_proxy
With unknown reason, this version of curl can’t work with environment variables NO_PRXY and no_proxy properly, then I unset the proxy environment variables one by one, until to both HTTPS_PROXY and _proxy.
unset HTTPS_PROXY
unset _proxy
it starts working and can connect to internal urls
So I would recommend to unset all proxy variables if you have in your environment as temporary solution.
unset _proxy _proxy HTTP_PROXY HTTPS_PROXY

My curl was not ignoring the proxy on Ubuntu 12. 04 until I set the “no_proxy” (lowercase) environment variable. The –noproxy option was not available.
