Proxy settings information

NOTE This is an older web page, last updated in 2006, and the information is outdated as this functionality is now native in Troi URL Plug-in

To use Troi URL Plug-in with proxy servers, you normally don't need to do anything. Troi URL Plug-in can automatically determine your proxy server settings.
It uses Internet Config on Mac OS 9. On Mac OS X it uses the Proxies settings of the Network panel in the System Preferences. On Windows it uses the settings of Internet Options in Control Panel. Below you find some screen shots for each platform to determine your proxy settings.

Explicit Proxy

Starting with version 1.8.2. you can now also explicitly set the proxy server to use. See the TURL_SetProxy function for this. See also the Getpage.fp7 example file for an example on how to use this.

Mac OS 9

You can see your settings by launching the Internet control panel and selecting the 'Advanced' tab. Then scroll down to the 'Firewalls' section. If your Internet control panel doesn't have an 'Advanced' tab, simply select the 'User Mode' menu item located in the 'Edit' menu and then choose 'Advanced'.

Mac OS X

When running on Mac OS X, you can see and configure your proxy server settings using the Network panel inside the System Preferences application. First, select the device that you need to use the proxy server with (most likely Built-in Ethernet), and then click the 'Proxies' tab. Your proxy settings should be visible now in the 'Web Proxy' field.
