These options allow for the configuration of the update checking system.

 

Proxy

 

Use HTTP proxy server - When engaged, this switch causes the update checker to use an HTTP proxy server.
Address - The host name or IP address of the HTTP proxy server.
Login - If your proxy server requires authentication, enter your login username here (otherwise leave this field blank).
Password - If your proxy server requires authentication, enter your login password here (otherwise leave this field blank).
Port - The port of the HTTP proxy server (common values include 80, 8080, etc.).

 

Note: When using proxy authentication, FolderSizes will automatically determine the proxy authentication mode. Supported authentication modes are Basic, Digest, and NTLM.

 

Other Options

 

Automatically check for updates when FolderSizes starts - When enabled, this option causes FolderSizes to check for newer version availability (in a background thread) when the application starts up. If a newer release is found, a small system tray area window will appear to notify the user.
