Hmm.. I think accessing the outside should be transparent
to the program. Did you try to access the outside and was
unsuccessful?

I think the proxy should be decided by the browser...
I can't find any function in Java to setup the proxy server for URLConnection either.

I was reading up on the book Migrating from Java 1.0 to Java 1.1
about the proxy. It made a mention of it, but did not specify an
example of how it can be done. I'll include bits and piece of information
and hope that you can benefit from it:

"Java 1.0 does support a way to enhance the acapabilities of the Socket-
based classes. You need to implement the java.net.SocketImpl class and
the java.net.SocketImplFactory interface. It gives you the ability to add functionality
for environment-specific situations in which you need to do something environmentally
specific for a network connection to take place. An excellent example of this would be
when you establish a connection to the Internet behind a firewall where all communication
needs to go through a proxy.

In Java 1.1, it has provided extendability of sockets. Extendable socket-based classes
are much more versatile and they are more focused on helping you add layers of
functionality, rather than just providing a way to compensate for the inconsistencies
between environments. It is still recommended that you use the subclassing -
SocketImpl apporach for any environmentally specific tasks.

P. 360/361.     If you are interested, you might want to check them out at your local
bookstore.

I found the same question asked by another user, the question's at:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/topics/comp/lang/java/Q.10072769

The answer is as follows:

--------

You can set both HTTP and SOCKS proxies:

    Properties sysprops = System.getProperties();

    sysprops.put("socksProxySet", "true");
    sysprops.put("socksProxyHost", "socks.whitehouse.gov");
    sysprops.put("socksProxyPort", "1080");

    sysprops.put("proxySet", "true");
    sysprops.put("proxyHost", "httpproxy.server.com");
    sysprops.put("proxyPort", "80");

--------

I believe you can simply replace the proxy host name with that of your
proxy. Port 80 is the default http port. This sets it up so that the
system know which proxy port to go out through. Hope it helped!

Does it need Syste.setProperties(...) after that?
