The Proxy Settings tab of the Options
Window enables you to specify proxy settings, if required to
access the internet. If you don't connect through a proxy
server (or don't know what this means), then you can probably use the default
setting, which is to not use a proxy server.
If you connect to the internet through a proxy server, your
proxy settings can be entered after checking the "Use a proxy
server" box. If you don't connect through a proxy, you
should leave this box unchecked to ensure VueMinder can
correctly connect. VueMinder connects to the internet when
checking for software updates, publishing or subscribing to online calendars,
syncing with Google Calendar, sending meeting requests, and
email, SMS, or voice reminders.
If you have configured Microsoft Internet Explorer to access the internet through a proxy server, you can simply have VueMinder reuse those settings. Alternatively, you can choose to manually specify a proxy server and port by clicking the corresponding option.
If your proxy server requires authentication to connect, check the "Proxy server requires authentication" box. This will enable you to enter the user name and password that are required to connect. The password is saved locally using 256-bit encryption.
After entering your proxy settings, it is recommended that you test your settings by using the "Text Proxy Settings" button. This will test your internet connectivity and report whether the proxy settings are correct.
