Posted by bartvdw on 1313/0303/2011

Those who use the proxycfg utility will find out that as from Vista/2008 it no longer exists. It has been incorporated in the netsh utility instead. Below a short overview:

  • proxycfg -u = netsh winhttp import proxy ie
  • proxycfg -d = netsh winhttp reset proxy
  • proxycfg -p = netsh winhttp set proxy proxy-server="PROXY.COM:8080" bypass-list="SERVER.COM"

To show current proxy: netsh winhttp show proxy

Brief list op commands:

  • dump           – Displays a configuration script.
  • import         – Imports WinHTTP proxy settings. (equiv of proxycfg -u)
  • reset          – Resets WinHTTP settings. (equiv of proxycfg -d)
  • set            – Configures WinHTTP settings.
