Class SetProxy

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class SetProxy
    extends Task
    Sets Java's web proxy properties, so that tasks and code run in the same JVM can have through-the-firewall access to remote web sites, and remote ftp sites. You can nominate an http and ftp proxy, or a socks server, reset the server settings, or do nothing at all.


    do nothing
    <setproxy proxyhost="firewall"/>
    set the proxy to firewall:80
    <setproxy proxyhost="firewall" proxyport="81"/>
    set the proxy to firewall:81
    <setproxy proxyhost=""/>
    stop using the http proxy; don't change the socks settings
    <setproxy socksproxyhost="socksy"/>
    use socks via socksy:1080
    <setproxy socksproxyhost=""/>
    stop using the socks server.

    You can set a username and password for http with the proxyHost and proxyPassword attributes. These can also be used against SOCKS5 servers.
