Tgif FAQ - Connecting to the Web

 
I'm connecting to the Internet through a proxy server. Can I still use tgif to access files on the Internet?
Sure! Tgif acknowledges the use of environment variables such as http_proxy and ftp_proxy used by lynx. If these are not defined, tgif looks for X defaults values for Tgif.HttpProxy and Tgif.FtpProxy. The syntax for the values in all these cases is host:port.

Curently, tgif does not know how to work with a SOCKS firewall.
