HTTP Proxy Support

If you are running Octane behind an existing proxy, Octane will try to find the current setup of your proxy and use it. Workarounds to bypass the proxy settings will not be valid.

If you are trying to setup your proxy for the first time or your proxy requires authentication, you may configure it either by using your operating system proxy settings or environment variables.
