Configuring Proxy Settings

  1. In Silk Performer, expand the Profiles node in the Project tree.
  2. Right-click the profile that you want to configure and choose Edit Profile.
    Tip: Alternatively, you can choose Settings > Active Profile from the menu bar.

    The Profile - [<profile name>] dialog box opens, and the Replay category is displayed in the shortcut list on the left.

  3. In the shortcut list, click the Web icon.
  4. Click the Proxy tab.
  5. Select one of the following:
    • Direct connection to the Internet: Connect to the Internet without using a proxy.
    • Automatic proxy configuration URL: Connect to the Internet through dynamic proxy configuration. Specify the location of the PAC file to be loaded using the steps outlined below.
    • Connect simulated browsers through a proxy server: Connect to the Internet through a specific proxy server (follow the steps outlined below):
    1. Click the Advanced button to open the Proxy Settings dialog box.
    2. In the Internet access area, configure the Host name or IP address and Port of the proxy server for each protocol. Check the Use the same proxy server for all protocols check box to use the same proxy for all Web traffic. Checking this setting enables Address and Port text boxes on the Profile - [<profile name>] - Web dialog box. To change the SOCKS proxy settings, click the Hosts tab on the Profile Settings - Internet dialog box.
    3. In the Exceptions area, list any host names, IP addresses, or subdomains for which you do not want to use the proxies specified in the Internet access area. This list can contain wildcards (*), which cause the application to bypass the proxy server for addresses that fit the specified pattern. To list multiple addresses and host names, separate them with semicolons.
    4. Click OK to save your settings.
  6. On the Profile - [<profile name>] - Web dialog box, click OK to save your proxy settings.
