Network configuration

If you use a proxy server to access the Internet you must configure CLC Genomics Workbench to use this. Otherwise you will not be able to perform any online activities.

CLC Genomics Workbench supports the use of an HTTP-proxy and an anonymous SOCKS-proxy.

To configure your proxy settings, go to Edit | Preferences and choose the Advanced tab (figure 1.27).

You have the choice between an HTTP-proxy and a SOCKS-proxy. The CLC Workbench only supports the use of a SOCKS-proxy that does not require authorization.

You can select whether the proxy should also be used for FTP and HTTPS connections.

Figure 1.27: Advanced preference settings include proxy configuration options.

List hosts that should be contacted directly, i.e. not via the proxy server, in the Exclude hosts field. The value can be a list, with each host separated by a | symbol. The wildcard character * can also be used. For example: *|localhost.

The proxy can be bypassed when connecting to a CLC Server, as described in CLC Server connection.

If you have any problems with these settings, contact your systems administrator.
