I wonder if it is possible to create a connection through a Proxy server in the standard internet Components available in Delphi. If it is so, please let me know :o)

Thanx ...

Yes you can:

<snippet from delphi 5 help file>

To recreate this example, you will need to create a new blank Delphi application

*NOTE*
If you do not use a proxy server at your current location, you will not be able to use this example. If you are not sure if you are using a proxy server or not, ask your network administrator.

Place a TButton, 2 TEdits, a TMemo, and a TNMHTTP on the form.

Insert the following code into Button1's OnClick event:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if (Edit1.Text <> '') and (Edit2.Text <> '') then
  begin

    NMHTTP1.Proxy := Edit1.Text;
    NMHTTP1.ProxyPort := StrToInt(Edit2.Text);
  end;
  NMHTTP1.Get('http://www.netmastersllc.com');
  Memo1.Text := NMHTTP1.Body;
end;


<end snippet>
