Hi all,

Currently looking into Java's htmlparser, but the problem is the program is running behind a firewall, therefore will get exception such as connections time out.

Does anyone know how to proxy and get around this situation on the coding level.

Any directions, tips, sample or tutorial will be greatly appreciated.


RE: htmlparser

I don't know what an htmlparser is but you can specify proxy setting in Java: Java Proxy settings

If you're using plain Java (J2SE) you should post this in the Java forum.


RE: htmlparser


Thx, tried that but that actually didnt worked.

But I have coded into the program and change the system property settings with the same proxy info instead and that worked.
