This page allows you to configure the proxy server used by features Check for Updates, Downloader and Crash Dump Uploader. In most cases you don't need to make any changes, as defaults will work on majority of installations.
When Hex Editor Neo establishes a connection to remote server, it always does it over HTTP protocol over the 80 port. If your computer must use HTTP proxy when accessing HTTP resources, you may configure the proxy settings on this page. In addition, if your proxy server requires authentication, you may also configure credentials to use.
There are four options you can use to configure a proxy server:
Specify the address (and optionally port number) of the proxy server to use. Examples:
will use the HTTP proxy server myserver.com on port 80 (the default).
will use the HTTP proxy server myserver.com on port 8080
There are three authentication options you can use:
When you configure the Hex Editor Neo to use the entered credentials, it stores entered password in registry under the
HKEY_CURRENT_USER key. It uses encryption to store the password. Only the same user is able to decrypt the password.
That is, if encrypted password is copied to another computer, an attacker will not be able to get the plain text password.
