Most Windows applications heavily rely on the system proxy and security settings. Modifying these settings is a system-wide change which will affect almost all applications and system services. To reduce the overhead of these changes ensure that you use strict proxy scoping rules and you remove old CA certificates as soon as they are no longer needed.

Open "Settings". Navigate to "Network & Internet". Select the "Proxy" section. Switch the "Use a proxy server" option on. Type your proxy server hostname or IP address prefixed by "http://". If you are configuring a local proxy then this is "http​//localhost" or "http​//". The port is your proxy port in your Feeds settings. For example if you are using proxy feed "proxy//localhost:8080", the proxy address is "http​//localhost" while the port is "8080".

This change will force all traffic using the configured network interface to use your proxy settings. This also applies to encrypted traffic. Therefore you need to complete the following setup to avoid abnormal system behaviour due to lack of proper CA certificates in place.

Open AppBandit. Navigate to "Preferences" from the application menu. Click on on the "Certificate" section. Identify the "default-cert.pem" file and click on the "System Install" button to load the certificate.

Press "Next" and then choose the "Place all certificates in the following store" option. Click the "Browse" button and select "Trusted Root Certificate Authorities". Click "Next" and trust the certificate once prompted.
