The Proxy settings can be configured via the command line or through the Windows Registry.

Windows Registry

The registry settings will override any Internet Option settings. The registry settings are located in the following registry path:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Authentic8, Inc.\Authentic8

Below are the registry key values:

proxy_enableREG_DWORD10Set to 0 (zero) to disable the use of a proxy. Settings in Registry and Internet Options are ignored.
proxy_hostREG_SZ The proxy host address

 3128 The proxy port
 JohnDoe The username to give the proxy**
 P4L3nDr0m3The password to give the proxy**

(*) If the registry key does not exist, the Default value is used. If not defined, there is no default.

(**) If both the username and password are supplied, the proxy credentials dialog will not be shown (unless the username and password are invalid).
