Setting up SpoonProxy to work with your ISP's proxy or a proxy-based remote content-filtering service

These instructions are a more detailed version of the what's in our FAQ at http://www.pi-soft.com/spoonproxy/faq.shtml#ispproxy.

When your ISP uses its own proxy server or you're using a remote content filtering service that uses a proxy server to filter content,  you will need to map to the remote proxy server in order to use its services.

In general, this means that instead of using the HTTP proxy on port 8080 in SpoonProxy, you will map TCP port 8080 IN and OUT in SpoonProxy to the IP address of the remote proxy server,

Here's a step by step:

1)  Get the name (or IP) of the proxy server and the port number from your ISP or the filtering service company.  (It will probably be 8080.)   Please note:  This is critical information that you must get from them.   We cannot get this info for you, nor can you proceed with these instructions until you have it.

2)  In SpoonProxy click Properties >> TCP Map

3)  If you have the HTTP Proxy setup on port 8080 either remove it or change it to a different port by clicking Delete or Edit.  (Change it to a different port if you still want to use it for some reason.)

4)  To add new mapping click Add.  The Type will be "Pass-through" (selected by default.)

5)  In the port field put 8080.  Then Click the properties button.

6)  In the port field on this next screen also put 8080 (if that's the port of the remote proxy server) and put the remote proxy server's address or IP in the Address field.

7)  Click OK, OK and OK again to save all settings.
