Hi,

can anyone tell me how browsers get the proxy settings after a connection has been established?

I'm trying to use hostap/wpa_supplicant's own scan and join, which now works up to dhcp, but i haven't found yet how to update the proxy information depending on which network was actually joined, so it's always the one that i set in the network settings proxy tab.

I've wondered about that as well. I find for command line applications I sometimes have to enter
export http_proxy=http://192.168.0.1:8080

or whatever.

there's also the equivalent ftp_proxy if you need that.

I presume somewhere the startup scripts for the various apps pick up the proxy settings from the dialup wizard.

on a C3000, the proxy configuration is stored in /home/zaurus/Applications/Network/modules/Proxies.conf

if type = 1 proxy is enabled, if type = 0 proxy is disabled
the rest should be self explanatory.

This file is usually configured by the network config applet.

Netfront and others use it.
