Normally, PandaPow expects a direct connection to the Internet to work properly. If you know that your internet connection is done via a proxy then you will need to change some settings to get PandaPow to work.
To make PandaPow able to connect via a proxy, please proceed as follows:
- Open PandaPow Settings, select the Advanced tab and click Edit Config File
- This will open the PandaPow configuration file in Notepad. In this file enter the following:
http-proxy PROXY_SERVER_ADDRESS PROXY_SERVER_PORT
Where PROXY_SERVER_ADDRESS and PROXY_SERVER_PORT are the address and port of the local proxy server.
- Save the PandaPow configuration file and try to connect.
To remove the proxy settings, in case you have a direct internet connection, simply do the first step above, but instead remove the line containing ‘http-proxy’. If you wish to keep the line in the configuration file, but tell PandaPow to ignore it, simply add a ‘;’ first on the line. In other words, if you enter this:
; http-proxy PROXY_SERVER_ADDRESS PROXY_SERVER_PORT
Then PandaPow will ignore the proxy settings, and assume that there is a direct connection to the internet.
