Proxy server IP address

Some network setups, especially corporate Local Area Networks, are protected from intrusion by a "proxy server" interposed between internal systems and the Internet outside the firm. In such cases, each application must ask the proxy server for permission to access the Internet.

This setting tells Options Laboratory where to find the proxy server to make such requests. Ask your systems administrator what IP address to enter in this box.

Proxy server port

Normally should be 80. Ask your systems administrator before changing this port number.
