QNetworkProxy: No use of proxy for specified Adresses?

  • Hi

    QNetworkProxy proxy;

    I'm searching for something like


    I have to say I'm not at all an expert in network communication, I touched this only because othwise I had no change that my program is connected to the outside world

  • The API does not seem to have such an option. If you are using QTcpSocket directly, you can use @socket->setProxy(QNetworkProxy::NoProxy);@ before connecting. If you use QNetworkAccessManager, I can't think of a proper solution.
