Activation through proxy

We have added proxy activation with Zoiper 5.3.8, make sure that you are always using the latest version of Zoiper5.

In the initial release there is support only for Linux and Windows, MacOS will be added at some point in the future.

Note: "Custom proxy" will only work with HTTPS. If you need plain HTTP, use the "system" option.

Windows:

 

 

The proxy settings do not have GUI and must be changed from the "Config.xml" file which is situated in "C:\Users\YourUser\AppData\Roaming\Zoiper5\"

 

Linux:

The proxy settings do not have GUI and must be changed from the "Config.xml" file which is situated in ~/.Zoiper5

 Once you open the "Config.xml" file for editing, locate the <proxy> section.

The settings are as follows:

`mode`: this option determines whether and how the proxy server is used.
    * Type: ***text enumeration***.
    * Possible values: `disabled`, `manual`, `system`.
        * `disabled` means that no proxy server will be used.
        * `manual` means that the proxy server specified by the `custom_proxy` option will be used.
        * `system` means that the proxy server specified in the network settings of the OS will be used.
    * Default value: `disabled`.

* `custom_proxy`: this section defines the proxy server to be used.
    * `hostname`: this option defines the hostname or the IP address of the proxy server.
        * Type: ***string*** (more specifically, a valid hostname or an IP address).
        * Default value: *nothing* (i.e. an empty string).
    * `port`: this option defines the port number of the proxy server.
        * UI: *none* (the option's value cannot be changed using Zoiper's interface).
        * Type: ***integer***.
        * Default value: `0`.
