This section is available in the Adguard window (Settings - Network section) only if the extended interface is enabled.
These settings may come in handy if you use a proxy server for Internet access. At the moment, the program supports HTTP proxies only. Available operating modes:
- No proxy.
- Use system-wide proxy settings. If your proxy server settings are configured in Windows, Adguard will automatically use them. This is the default option.
- Manual configuration of the proxy server. At the moment, only Basic authorization is supported.
Configuring traffic filtration modes.
- Automatically filter browser traffic. Adguard uses a traffic interception module to automatically intercept and filter your browser traffic.
- Use Adguard as an HTTP proxy. When this mode is enabled, Adguard will not use the traffic interception module and will work as a proxy server accessible at 127.0.0.1:[selected port]. In this case, in order for Adguard to be able to filter traffic, you need to configure your browser to use this proxy. It is important that you configure the proxy only for the HTTP protocol, since Adguard doesn't support other protocols..
Traffic interception module
The traffic interception module is intended for automatic filtration of your browser traffic. If Adguard is enabled, it will automatically intercept all of your traffic. If you disable the traffic interception module, automatic filtration will become impossible and the only option you'll have is that of using Adguard as an HTTP proxy.
Adguard will filter secure (https) connections if this option is enabled.
Use WFP network driver
Using WFP network driver allows Adguard to filter Modern UI applications traffic in Windows 8.
