Hi,

Currently, wing only support http proxy for feedback, bug reports and license activation. Could you please add more proxies types and their sphere of influence for wing's events? Say, add socks5 proxy using for wing's update process.

Regards.

An http proxy (actually we use https) should be used everywhere. If it is not being used, please submit a bug report from Wing's Help menu and include the log.

  1. Why not add support for using a socks5 proxy?

  2. The http proxy for my case is converted from a socks5 proxy using pysocks. I'm not sure whether it suports https or not.

  3. Is there a pythonic method for me to check whether the transfer is based on the proxy I set for wing instead of using tcpdump like external tools?

I forget what platform you're on and proxy support is often platform dependent. Could you please send a bug report from Wing's Help menu? This will give us more information about your system.

Does it help any to uncheck the Network > Use HTTPS to wingware.com preference? That will cause it to use http and not https and maybe it'll work if your proxy doesn't allow https. This is just a guess, though.

I don't know how to benchmark it. If wingware's official website has some files or scripts which can be used to test the proxy, it will be more convenient.
