Web Proxy Settings

Your organisation or Internet service provider may require you to use a proxy. A proxy acts as an intermediary between your computer and the Internet. It intercepts all requests to the Internet to see if it can fulfil the request using its cache.

Proxies are used to improve performance, filter requests, and hide your computer from the Internet to improve security. Proxies are often part of corporate firewalls.

Settings List

In Options, you can select the following proxy settings:

No proxy

This is the default option. Choose this if you don’t want to use a proxy

Manual Proxy Configuration

Choose this if you have a list of one or more proxy servers. Also note the following the points:

  • Ask your system administrator for the configuration information. Each proxy requires a hostname and a port number
  • If the same proxy name and port number are used for all protocols, tick: Use this proxy server for all protocols
  • No Proxy For: List of hostnames or IP addresses that will not be proxied
