My office doesn't have wi fi and I have trying to move away from using my PC to my mac at work. In order to connect to our LAN on my PC I would open up IE9 and change the auto detect to off and type in the proxy server address.

When I try to do this with Chrome, there are a ton of proxy options how do I know which one to use?

System preferences -> Ethernet -> Advanced -> Proxies.

It's basics, man. Google first, before you start asking such embarrassing questions.

I was going to comment similarly, but I think they're asking which proxy to use (i.e., Auto Proxy Discovery, Automatic Proxy Config, Web Proxy, etc).

But a Google would still probably answer this question.

Yeah I got that; that's not my question though.

I have all the following as options:

Auto Proxy discover
Automatic Proxy configuration
Web Proxy
Secure web Proxy (https)
FTP Proxy
Socks Proxy
Streaming Proxy (RTSP)
Gopher Proxy

Then a box for "exclude simple hostnames"

And bypass proxy settings for these host & Domains.


So my question is where do i enter what I"m used to entering in IE9?

Don't need to be too hard on him many people are scared of Google...
Nah but OP seriously Google has the answers to soooo many questions.

I have googled, but I think you guys are still missing the point. All I have is two items, the proxy name and the port. I'm being asked for tons of other info, so how do I get it to the point where I only have to plug in two sets of info like i'm used to? Or where do I get the rest of the info?:cool:

Off the top of my head, copy the settings you have from your IE9 and copy them over to your web proxy settings. You may also want to do the same for the other protocols but this may depend on how your work infrastructure is set up.

You most likely want "Web Proxy (HTTP)". If you click Advanced (or something to that effect) in IE, you'll see the different protocols in there and can match them up, but you probably need HTTP.

Just so ya'll know I asked this same question but concerning my iMAC and google brought me to this page. So maybe you could try helping the guy out before assuming he didn't already google his question. Ya know?

No offense, but it's been four years since the last post. OP has either figured it out by now or done something else. ;)

With all due respect, despite the passing of four years time, my search on Google provided this page/topic/thread/link as the number 2 (second in the list IOW) result when searching for results like iMac + WebProxy + network + System Preferences + Mac OS + Advanced settings. Jus saying, it's not our fault that google sent us here, so please do try to cut us a break guys. We simply search for truths. TY in advance for your future compassion and restraint regarding queries here and elsewhere on the inter webs.

I thought these forums were supposed to helpful, not rude. You sir, are rude.

Don't listen to them, google is not your friend. Bing it.
I agree about google. They are sketchy A.F. now.

Well said. I just flat out told him he's rude.
