2.5.5 Specifying a Proxy

If you access the Internet via a proxy, specify the connection information in the [uptrack] section of /etc/uptrack-api.conf:

https_proxy = [protocol://][username:password@]proxy[:port] 

where protocol is http or https, username and password authenticate you with the proxy (if required), and proxy and port are the host name or IP address and port number used to connect to the proxy.

For example:

https_proxy = http://proxy.example.com:3128/

The proxy must support HTTPS connections.
