  1. Click the agent icon on your computer's menu bar and select Open Preferences.

  2. Select Connect using proxy.
  3. Select a proxy protocol.
  4. Type the name or IP address of the proxy server.
  5. Type the port number of the proxy server.
  6. If the proxy server requires authentication, type the authentication user name and password.
  7. Click OK.
