If you are connected to the internet through a proxy, you have to enter the proxy configuration in that section.
To access certain sites without going through a proxy, you have to enter the domain names of those sites (one entry per line).
WebSite-Watcher supports different login types for FTP proxies, you can specify them with numbers from 0 to 8. To determine the correct number for your FTP proxy, simply click the button "Detect Login Type automatically".
Use the FTP-over-HTTP method only if you have to connect through a proxy that doesn't support the FTP protocol.
A typical example where FTP-over-HTTP is required is the proxy solution "Squid". The FTP-over-HTTP method sends a HTTP-like request (GET "ftp://ftp.something.com") to Squid, Squid connects to the FTP server and gets a file listing. Then Squid converts this file listing into a webpage and returns it to your browser or to WebSite-Watcher.
Disadvantages and limitations:
Tip: Use the FTP-over-HTTP method only if direct FTP access is not possible!
The Proxy List section allows you to define further HTTP proxies that can be selected per bookmark (see also chapter Check Options (1)). So it will be possible to monitor different bookmarks with different proxies.
