Is there a way to detect the proxy settings address and port number?

Hi - sure (without looking) there's a GetProxySettings somewhere!

Use a "Dialog - Get Proxy Settings" action to get the info. /ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif

I can get the dialog to pop-up, but the values are blank as if asking to manually enter the info. I must be doing something wrong.

Exactly. The dialog is meant to prompt the user for those settings.

If you want to get them automatically, you can try getting the information from the Registry (you might be able to gather it from IE's connection settings?), but I don't believe it will always be available that way.

Good idea Lorne, I found the registry values I wanted in the following places:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyServer

HKEY_USERS\.Default\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyServer

Do you know which one should I use?

The first one.

The .Default key holds default settings for new users, and isn't as likely to be configured properly. /ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif
