Proxy Setup

How to setup an automatic proxy to access SAFE Network websites via SAFE Launcher.

[block:api-header] { "type": "basic", "title": "Setting up an automatic proxy using a PAC file" } [/block] When setting up an automatic proxy we use a PAC file to specify what rules the proxy follows. **There's no need to download this file,** the easiest way to set up a proxy is to point to the file using a URL. You can do this by entering the following URL in the automatic proxy dialog in your OS, or preferred browser.
