I'm new to perl & not familiar with it at all... I have a script that creates a browser session with

my $browser = LWP::UserAgent->new;

it is called like this $browser->get($page_url, ":content_file"=>"tmp");

the question I have is, is it possible to define a proxy for the $browser object?

if so, how do I do that?

Change the value of proxy_url from below code, format is IP:Port
my $proxy_url = "http://172.116.89.14:8801/";

$browser->proxy('http', $proxy_url);

Open in new window
