4.5.5 Specifying a Proxy

If you access the Internet by using a proxy, specify the connection information in the [uptrack] section of the /etc/uptrack-api.conf file, as shown in the following example:

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

where protocol is either specifed as http or https, username and password authenticate you with the proxy (if required), and proxy and port are the host name/IP address and port number that you use to connect to the proxy server, respectively.

The following example shows how you might specify this connection information:

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

Note that the proxy must support HTTPS connections.
