    Hey guys!

    I have been working in a company uses their network connection to do the inteenet!
    So everytime i connects it ask for the proxy like xx.xxx.xx.xxx:yyyy

    where "x" denotes the number

    y denotes proxy port like 8080




    i am able to do internet through internet through google chrome as it ask the username and password for the connection. After entering the details it connetcts the internet!!


    My query is that there are some softwares like window media player it does not asks the proxy password !

    What to do to such softwares to connect the internet??

    Once you authenticate to proxy, then other software does not need to authenticate for this session, but needs to have config filled, so it DOES use the proxy connection
    The proxy need to be filled explicitly, or if you have proxy in Internet Options of IE then Use proxy settings of Web browser

    But there are many softwares which does not have an option as configuration settings so that i may enter the proxy settings,passwords etc,

    such type of softwares is window media centre!

    Can i give the proxy settings to all the softwares using control panel etc.

    I have already given proxy settings in tool option of internet explorer
