Procedure

  1. In the root folder of the presence, locate config.properties and open it with a text editor.
  2. Add the relevant settings (remove the "#" at the start of each relevant line), and save the file. "Host" can be a name or an IP address.

    For example, to configure internal proxy IP 192.168.1.100, and port 3128, change:

    #internalProxyHost = 
    #internalProxyPort =
    to
    internalProxyHost = 192.168.1.100 
    internalProxyPort = 3128 
    Note: Configuring both a Private Site Server proxy and a PAC file is not supported.
  3. If the Presence is running, terminate it (Ctrl + C) for the changes to take effect.
  4. Start the Presence.
