Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE)
The built-in Mozilla browser.
Start Internet Explorer (not from Spirent iTest) and configure the explorer in the normal way for proxy. When Spirent iTest launches Internet explorer, it picks up the proxy setting automatically.
Configuring proxies for Spirent iTest's built in browser (Mozilla-Firefox) you configure the browser proxy by setting preferences.
To view or edit preferences, click Windows ->Preferences. On the preference page, click Spirent -> Session types -> Web -> Proxy setting.
Properties can also be set by launching the iTest web browser, and going to the URL: about:config
When we load the URL, you will see a big list of various properties in use. We can filter out the properties of interest by typing 'proxy' in the filter box. Double clicking on any property brings up a dialog where you can edit the value of that property.
I have tried to group up most common scenarios of proxy usage and described below how to configure them:
This is the default setting. If you are not using proxies, then you do not need to modify anything.
If you are using a proxy and want to remove it, choose this option. Set the network.proxy.type property to 0.
This setting causes the Mozilla engine to automatically detect which proxy to use. To do this set the network.proxy.type property to 4.
If you configure your proxy with a proxy configuration (.pac) file, then use this setting.
Set the network.proxy.type property to
Set the network.proxy.autoconfig_url property to the URL of the proxy configuration file, for example, file:///home/username/myproxyfile.pac.
Click Reload to reload the PAC file from the specified URL.
