However, if you connect to the internet via a proxy server within your local area network, you will need to enter that information in the appropriate fields.
When first installing the software or making changes in the future, you may need to setup or alter your configuration options. This step may or may not automatically start during the first time you run the application. However, it is best to confirm these settings prior to placing your first order.
