You can change your IE proxy setting, and irobot will use it.
Or you can call SetProxyServer(ip, port, agentname) in robot to change the proxy at run time. If you give the agentname, the proxy will affect only the running robot.
In the software package, there is a sample robot "change_proxy.irb" showing how to randomly pick a proxy from a list of addresses in 'proxy.txt'. You can copy the task to your robot and call it regularly.
