Winwget proxy support

I'm pulling out my hair here....

With no proxy defined, my winwget (latest build) gives me a nice error msg - host not resolved.

when I enter the proxy it still goes to error status but adds a blank line to the log file. I can type whatever I like into the proxy setting, but I still just get error and a blank line in the log.

given that I know how to type in the proxy address properly, how am I supposed to fix it when the error log gives me no clue....

I don't think proxies work properly in winwget. We're dropping the app anyway since it doesn't support Windows 7.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Thanks for the reply, John.

Thanks for the reply, John. In that case is there an alternative, given that I that I don't want to use firefox - loyal chrome fan Smile
