One of our clients installed new Firepower 2140 + FMCv.
Because of security measures the FMC ( ver 7.0.1) is connected to the internet through firewall by proxy settings. after initial installs and successfully updates, the attached warning is always shown.
" AMP for firepower status
Cannot connect to cloud "
Customer already purchased but not limited to :
note : no endpoint or threat grid license is purchased.
All of updates are downloaded successfully and licenses are activated in FMCv.
We do not know if this warning is related to network connectivity to cisco cloud or there is another issue ?
Your helps would be appreciated.

The main issue concept in this question :
leads to this document:
it is how to test and solve connection to cisco cloud which actually is not very helpful because telnet client is not available in fmc version 7.0.1.
Finally I came to realize that it is waste of time and I changed the connection to the internet and problem solved.
Instead of proxy server we stablished site-to-site VPN. Update traffic is passed through tunnel.
By the way, you can telnet from FMC in all versions.

That's odd. I also checked two other FMC 7.0 (one VM, one hardware) and see it's not there. Yet my FMC 7.2 has it.
I seem to recall it was in FMC 6.x previously but don't have one handy to verify.
