    There are three options to select from: 
    • “Don’t use a proxy” - mmhmm will not use a proxy server. 
    • “Auto-detect the system proxy” - mmhmm will detect the proxy used by your computer and apply those settings to be used in the app. This option is selected by default.
    • "Use the following proxy" - mmhmm will use your desired proxy settings.
  3. To set your desired proxy settings, select “Use the following proxy” and input your “Host” and “Port” settings into the appropriate boxes. Then select “Apply” to confirm your settings.
