our corporate proxy is using authentification mode. So in properties of proxy connection I must somewhere enter my proxy login and password to pass throuh our proxy. But I cant find in SC any place where I can setup this data.
In yours recomedations from http://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?l=doc/LoginInstructions.php#LoginProblems (2.4) I also cant find anything for fix my issue.

Can you help me to setup proper settings to pass trouht proxy with autentification?


Here is log from SC with my unsuccessful login:

Other than for logging into Sierra Chart itself, a proxy is not supported. So you cannot connect to the market data feed over a proxy. Must be a direct connection.

I see... But in SC I can setup proxy connection parameters (proxy address an port) in initial window before login - http://www.sierrachart.com/images/LoginInstructions_MainLoginWindow.png

May be it will be possible to extend it and add two new fields (proxy login and password)? If they will be filled - SC "transfer" they to the proxy during login.
Autentification is one of the standart method of accessing proxies, and it wil be great if SC will support it ;)

Sierra Chart does not support a proxy server for a market data feed connection. Only for the HTTP connections. And the market data feed does not use this type of connection.

We will have to look at this later on, but will not be for a while.

Thank you for this. But if they use that software would they have to be able to change the server address for the market data feed they are connecting to, within Sierra Chart?


In the case of the Sierra Chart market data feeds, this cannot be done.

One solution would be use http tunnel and OpenVPN to transparently bypass the proxy as is explained here:
http://exiledmind.net/vpn-tunnel/

Note, that this solution would require that you have access to a machine that is outside of the proxy. a low cost VPS works great.

Solution here http://www.proxifier.com/index.htm

In Profile / Proxy Servers - set up yours proxy server adsress, port, and(!!!) proxy type, authentification login/password, and create 2 rules:
1) Default rule: Action - Direct (all applications trnsparently pass trought proxifier
2) Rule for SierraChart: Target Hosts - Any, Target Port - Any, Action - Proxy HTTPS

After this manipulations I obtain live price in SC and green status :)
