This expert guide shows how to configure the ctrlX CROE to connect via a proxy on your PC to the internet. For e.g. installing NodeRed pallets in the ctrlX CORE - Node-RED App.
connection route of ctrlX CORE to the internet
The Windows host PC is in same local network as the ctrlX CORE and "behind a corporate proxy" which (normally) needs authentication
The Windows host PC must have Internet access
Latest release of Px.exe or a similar proxy running on the PC, and allows connections from other interfaces (gateway mode). This tool will start processes invisible in the background. See task manager if it is running. There will be 2 or 3 instances if everthing is correct. !Please beware that this is an open source tool not provided by Rexroth!
Firewall inbound exception has to be added that allows incoming connections to port 3128: Windows firewall settings "Programs and Services" Windows firewall settings "Protocols and Ports"
Start your proxy tool (e.g. Px)
Log into the ctrlX CORE WebUI and navigate to "Settings --> Proxy ". Add proxy address (r efering to the Px proxy running on the Windows host PC ) and save: ctrlX CORE WebUI proxy settings
Restart of the control is required for settings to take effect
Afterwards you have direct internet access at your ctrlX CORE and e.g. palettes can be installed in the ctrlX Node-RED app.

As you said solution was discussed several times before: You need to connect your ctrlX CORE to the internet.
Your settings look a little bit strange to me as you are using 192.168.1.1 as a gateway but your internet router seems to be connected in the 10.141.29.x subnet. If you are connected to a router with DHCP functionality that provides free internet leave the DNS and gateway open as you will get the correct one automatically. See this post.
If you are connected behind a corporate proxy (in a company network) and the router will not grant you free internet you will have to use a proxy to get it via your PC. See this blog post for further information.

As I did not publicize this number but already did some test I try to give some information.
We set up different topologies like an App on the ctrlX CORE is client and uses data as well as external devices are client. Each Case was tested with standard http commands, standard C++/python and other programming languages and also our own libraries for data layer access. Measured was the min/max and average time needed for an access and how many access per second could be performed. These tests were running over some time to also get highs/lows and average values.
If you have further question please specify more what you exactly want to know and/or also write me a private message with your contact data so we can have a direct discussion.
