Use a proxy with applications, not only with a browser

I need InDesign connects to Internet (for a plugin) through a corporate proxy.
I'm using windows 7, I change my proxy configuration in "Internet Options", that works for Internet browsers but InDesign skips configuration and try to go directly to the server.

How can I  force the application to use the proxy? Any Idea?, Will be better option use a VPN instead proxy?

You can set a global, machine level proxy. In command promt enter

netsh winhttp import proxy source=ie

Open in new window


to set your IE proxy settings as machine proxy.

VPN is a good decision if you are planning to connect to the remote PC's, shared resources in the remote organization, or just the Internet within your corporate network. All the applications and browsers will be passing their traffic via the VPN, if your are not directly indicated reverse in the proxy setting of course :) This is the most cheap and reliable solution You just need to configure VPN on a server side to allow remote connections. .
