    hi,

    A proxy is a server that sits between you and the Internet. If you want to adjust your windows 8 proxy settings, you do follow the following steps:You can configure a proxy for a LAN connecttion. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.-----Click Network and Internet, and then click Internet Options.-----In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Connections tab.----Click the LAN Settings button.-----To enable the use of a proxy server, check the box for “Use a proxy server for your LAN (These settings will not apply to dial-up or VPN connections)," ----- Enter the IP address of the proxy in the Address text box.-----Enter the port number of the proxy in the Port text box.----Click OK to complete the proxy configuration process.
    Hope it will do you a favor!
