29 Dec 09 Google Chrome: How to Assign a Proxy Server that is Different from Internet Explorer’s Settings

By default, Google Chrome will use the proxy settings that Internet Explorer uses. If you wish to use a different proxy server or disable the proxy completely you need to append a switch to your application shortcut.

  • Go to the shortcut you use to open Google Chrome
  • Right-click the shortcut and select Properties
  • To use a different proxy server, go to the Target text box.Go to the end of the text, add a space and input the following

–proxy-server=”ipaddress:port”

Where ipaddress is the address of the desired proxy server and port is the desired port.

For example -proxy-server=”10.0.0.50:8080″

Make sure to include the quotes.To disable the proxy settings, go to the Target textbook. Go to the end of the text, add a space and input the following:

–no-proxy-server=”

and click OK
