Depending on the operating system used, you need to run netsh winhttp and configure your proxy server settings. On a 32bit OS this can be run from the command prompt (or c:\windows\system32) but on a 64Bit OS you will need to run this in two places, as NME is a 32Bit application.
Using this solution means you do not need to set the Proxy Server settings via MNE's Global Default Settings.
Windows 7 and Later:
On a 32Bit OS you will need to run netsh from the windows command prompt, running "As Administratror" and then the use the following commands to set your proxy server;
netsh winhttp>import proxy source=ie
netsh winhttp> exit
On a 64Bit OS you will need to run the netsh command in two locations as NME is a 32Bit application. These locations are;
For 32Bit powershell this location is : c:\windows\system32\netsh.exe
For 64Bit applications this location is : c:\windows\SysWOW64\netsh.exe
Both of the following commands should be run in a Command Prompt windows running "As Administrator" when using a 64bit OS:
c:\windows\system32\netsh.exe winhttp import proxy source=ie
c:\windows\SysWOW64\netsh.exe winhttp import proxy source=ie
Windows XP and Windows Server 2003:
Open a Command Prompt and enter the following command:
If the import proxy source=ie command fails and netsh reports that no proxy is being used, make sure that IE is not configured to use a PAC file (automatic configuration script). This fix will ony apply the proxy settings where they are defined under the Proxy Server section of IE's Local Area Network Settings.
