HTTP Proxy (tick_24All Editions)

HTTP Proxy Options

Use Windows proxy settings - Check this box to read and use the Windows proxy settings from the registry. The proxy settings are read from the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings. This option is enabled by default. (New v15.0005)

Enable HTTP proxy - Check this box if you want to use an HTTP proxy for HTTP and HTTPS requests. Some users may be required to use a proxy for any HTTP/HTTPS request. In this case, you must enable the HTTP proxy by checking this box and also enter the necessary proxy information. Without the correct proxy information, the functions of HTML Validator that require making HTTP requests may not function (such as opening documents from the web, link checking, and checking to see if you are using the latest version of HTML Validator). This option is not enabled by default.

Proxy - Enter the address of the HTTP proxy.

Port - Enter the port of the HTTP proxy. The default is port 80.

Username - If the proxy requires you to log in, then enter the username to log in with.

Password - If the proxy server requires a password, then enter the password to use. Note that proxy information, including the password, is stored in the registry and is not stored securely.

NOTE: Currently only one proxy is supported. It is used for both HTTP and HTTPS requests.

NOTE: These proxy options do not affect the settings of the integrated web browser. The integrated web browser settings are controlled by Internet Explorer's and the system's "Internet Properties" dialog options.

If you use a lot of proxies, then you may want to investigate Proxy Switcher, a software program that lets you change proxy settings faster and easier.
