Configure Internet Explorer to Use a Proxy Server

 

Note: We are using Internet Explorer11 to demonstrate the changes, but these steps should be similar for all versions of Internet Explorer.

 

 

Follow these instructions to configure Internet Explorer to use a Proxy Server:

 

Click the Tools icon in the top right corner, then click on Internet options.

 

 

Then click on the Connections Tab.

 

 

Then click the "LAN Settings" button.

 

 

In the LAN Settings, uncheck the box that says "Automatically detect settings". Then in the Proxy Server Section, click the checkbox to enable "Use a proxy server for your LAN..."

 

 

In the Address field, enter the IP Address of your Proxy Server, and the Proxy Server Port Number in the Port field. You will receive the IP Address and Port Number of your Proxy Server(s) in a separate email.

 

Press OK and then OK again to save your settings.

 

Now when you surf the web, you will be surfing by using the Proxy Server. The first time you open a webpage, depending on your account's authentication settings, you may be asked to enter your credentials, which were supplied in your Welcome Email.

 

To stop using the Proxy Server, repeat the above steps, but uncheck "Use a proxy server for your LAN..." and recheck "Automatically detect settings" in the LAN Settings.
