Using Proxies with Simon

Hey there, I'm using Simon since a while and from time to time it would be really helpful to have the outgoing connections go through one (or a list of) proxy IP addresses. Is there a script or something available to use Simon with proxies? Thanks in advance!

Re: Using Proxies with Simon

That isn't something I've had experience with... but Simon's web service works just like a web browser, so any proxy settings in the Network System Preferences would apply.

You could also make a custom script to access a website via a proxy; something like this:

curl -x {Proxy Host}:{Proxy Port} {URL}

The curly braces are custom variables, which will show up as fields in the Test editor.
