In my college, I have a proxy server which is listening on port 8080. I want to run Thunderbird. I am not sure about which protocol this proxy is for. I would be happy to help you out, if you can tell me how to check this. (I am sorry about this lack of knowledge)
System Specs Windows 7, 3 GB RAM, High Speed LAN connection.
And I have been trying to do that for quite some time now. Some of the things I tried
- The following commands:
netsh winhttp import proxy source=ie
These are the commands that are used to get the Windows App Store to work in Windows 8. I thought that if I do this, then all the traffic that any application requests is tunelled through the proxy by the system. (Please pardon my bad technical term usage! I don't know anything about networking and this is my layman understanding of this problem.)
- I tried a program called pCap.
Both the above solutions did not work.
please provide a solution to either run Thunderbird (Gmail) or suggest another mail client which can run Gmail fluently under the conditions described above.
I am not behind a corporate proxy.
Please help me out with the above situation.
