How do I use the automatic proxy configuration tool in Macrobond?

Some networks restrict allowed connections. As such, default network settings in Macrobond may not work when establishing a connection to the Macrobond servers. If this is the case, our built-in Automatic Configuration tool may help with find a working connection.

It can be accessed in the toolbar, choose Edit and go to Settings:

In the settings window, go to the “Communication” tab and click on the ”Automated configuration” button.

Clicking “Run tests” will automatically test several communication options. The process might take a few minutes.

If a working configuration is found, a new button should appear above the Run tests button called “Use the first configuration that was found”. Clicking it will configure the Macrobond application to work with the configuration which was determined to be the optimal one.

In order to start using the new configuration, click “OK” and restart the application.

Macrobond recommends that all communication with its servers is done via HTTPS rather than HTTP. HTTPS ensures confidentiality and security for the information exchanged. If the automatic proxy configuration tool detects that only HTTP can be used, please contact your IT department.
