BlackFog makes use of Microsoft’s Windows HTTP Services (WinHTTP) rather than the alternative Windows Internet (WinINET) mechanism to communicate via SSL with the BlackFog servers.
WinHTTP proxys are configured system wide as opposed to the user based setup of WinINET.
Setup can be achieved using netsh.exe or the deprecated proxycfg.exe applications on the machine. Auto configuration with Web Proxy Auto-discovery Protocol (WPAD) is not recommended for performance reasons as this will generate significant delays inside the application.
Setting up the proxy server
To configure BlackFog to use a proxy use the following command at the command line when running as an administrator.
