How to work with Proxies

By rosdol - 4/8/2013 7:58:51 AM

Hi, I tried to download charts but it comes back with an error 407, Server requires proxy authentication. Can you please tell me where to specify the proxy?

Telling SkyDemon explicitly about a specific proxy gateway is often necessary on large corporate networks, even with (especially with?) windoze 7 which can be too clever for its own good.

Setup > Planning Options from the menu bar in SD.
Misc tab.
Proxy Server Options button.
You'll have to work out what goes in the boxes for yourselves, as it will depend on the corporate network involved.

Just have to remember to change your password in the SkyDemon settings when you change your system password. Ask me how I know this... 

I know this question has been answered, but thought I'd post the explicit answer as a reminder to myself for later!
