Release Notes

This is the 1.3 release of Proxy Monitor, a small application that monitors the network and auto-detects the internet proxy server to use.

What's new in this release?
  • Thanks to David Huntley, the proxy servers are now set using the proper Windows API's instead of writing directly to the registry. This means that setting the proxy now works properly under all circumstances. Thanks a million David!
  • Also added by David Huntley is the support for connections, so you can specify proxy servers for specific connections such as dial-up or VPN connections.
  • The ping timeout setting is now used to control the timeout for the entire proxy detection. Previously, it was only used for an actual ping request but even in that case, it did not include a 15 second timeout for a DNS query. So now the entire check is guarded with a timeout.
  • The proxy detection is now performed on a background thread so the user interface is not blocked.
  • For troubleshooting purposes, information and error messages are now logged to a ProxyMonitor.log file (which is configurable in the ProxyMonitor.exe.config file).
