===== Configuring Awasu's own internet access =====
 
 
 
For Awasu's own internet access (e.g. updating feeds, downloading podcasts, etc.), the proxy can be configured by opening the Program Options dialog (from the ''Tools'' menu), going to the ''Advanced'' page and clicking on the ''Proxy authentication'' button.
 
 
 
===== Configuring the embedded browser's internet access =====
 
 
 
Awasu uses Internet Explorer as its embedded browser and will therefore use whatever proxy settings it has been configured with (open a separate IE window, choose ''Internet Options'' from the ''Tools'' menu and go to the ''Connections'' page). Normally, the embedded IE browser will ask you for your proxy username and password but both Awasu 2.3 and 2.4 inadvertently disable this dialog box. To re-enable it, open Awasu's Program Options dialog, go to the ''Display'' page and click on the Properties button to the right of where it says ''"Internet Explorer"'' in the top-right corner. Then untick ''"Disable dialog boxes"''.
