If I read you correctly you can set the Proxy Options in the Boinc Manager, double click the icon in the task bar(down by the clock) and then click the Advanced tab and then Options. You will 2 tabs for Proxy stuff. I do not use a Proxy so have no idea how to set it up, sorry.

Given that this thread

Given that this thread already speaks of proxies, I will reconnect to it.

My ISP says that I must set the proxy setting to Internet Exploder to "Auto-detect proxy settings for this network", whilst BOINC wants an explicit address for the proxy.

How can I find the proxy address, to feed it to BOINC?

Thanks

"Depending on your circumstance, you may be required to use a proxy to connect to the internet. Proxies are often used by corporations and other organizations along with firewalls for security purposes. The proxy acts as an intermediary between your browser and the internet. If you need to browse the internet through a proxy, you may change your proxy settings by selecting Options from the Tools menu. Then, select the Internet tab."
Proxies can also used to hide your true internet location.

Most of us do not need proxies to get to the internet and the settings can be left blank. Here is a site that lists some free proxy settings:
