HttpSetProxy Chains

2 posts in this topic

After looking through the documentation reguarding HTTP proxies, I was wondering if proxy chaining was allowed in this function? (Definition of proxy chaining)

The documentation states:

Sets the internet proxy to use for http access.

HttpSetProxy ( mode [, "proxy:port" [, "username", "password"]] )

Parameters

mode

The proxy mode to use:

0 = (default) Use current Internet Explorer settings for proxy.

1 = Use no proxy (direct access)

2 = Use the proxy specified

proxy:port

[optional] The address and port of the proxy to use. See remarks below.

username

[optional] If required, the username for the proxy

password

[optional] If required, the password for the proxy

Does the proxy:port have to be in that format? To chain proxy servers the proxy:port syntax would have to allow something like this:

http://proxy1.com:8080/http://proxy2.com:3124/http://proxyN.com:8010

I hope I explained this enough for someone to understand the question. If not ask away! Thanks guys!

After testing further, I found that the function doesn't error if you chain the proxies as I describe but it doesn't appear to work either. I guess that was a lost cause. Thanks
