Proxy Servers

Under Design Studio Settings you can specify a number of proxy servers that can be used by Design Studio.

Configure proxy servers in Design Studio

In the “Proxy Server” tab of the Design Studio Settings proxy servers are specified using the following properties:



Use Proxy Server

Check this checkbox to enable the use of a proxy server.


The host name of the proxy server. This can be an IP address, or the fully qualified domain name, e.g.

Port Number

The port number on the proxy server. Leave this blank to use the default proxy server port 8080.

User Name

The user name to use if the proxy server requires login.


The password to use if the proxy server requires login.

Excluded Hosts

Here, you can specify a list of host names that the proxy server should not be used for. You should specify one host name per line. Each host name can be an IP address, or a fully qualified domain name, e.g.

Options descriptions

Note that a list of proxy servers can also be imported from a file using the open file button underneath the proxy server list. The file may hold an arbitrary number of proxy server definitions each of which must comply with the following format:

proxyName.proxyServerUse = true
                    proxyName.proxyServerHost = host name or IP address
                    proxyName.proxyServerPort = port number
                    proxyName.proxyServerUserName = user name
                    proxyName.proxyServerPassword = password
                    proxyName.proxyServerExcludedHostNames = list of hosts

Where proxyName is a name chosen to identify that particular proxy server. Each proxy server must have its own unique proxyName.

When multiple proxy servers are specified, a new proxy server will be chosen every time a robot is run.

Note that you can also specify a proxy server for an individual robot. This is done when you configure the robot in the Robot Configuration Window in Design Studio. Such a proxy server will override the proxy servers specified here. See the Design Studio User’s Guide for more information. Furthermore, the proxy server can be changed during robot execution with the Change Proxy action.
