Configuring Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer Proxy Settings

  1. Click Internet Options in the Tools menu.
  2. Go to the Connections tab.
  3. Click on LAN Settings.
  4. Click on the checkbox beginning with Use a proxy server for....
  5. Click on the Advanced... button.
  6. In the HTTP and Secure fields type localhost under the Proxy address to use column, and 8777 under Port

    If you have changed your proxy server settings to use a port other than 8777 then type your selected port in place of 8777.

  7. Hit the OK button a few times till you get back to your web browser.

If you're using a dial-up connection the setup will differ slightly. Instead of the LAN Settings button you'll want to find your dial-up connection under the Dial-up and Virtual Private Network settings dialog box, then configure it via the Settings button.

Depending on your operating system, instead of localhost you may need to use either or the IP address of the machine. If you have trouble connecting to screen-scraper's proxy with your web browser, please see this FAQ.
