    proxy server settings

    afternoon all,

    i have recently put a lot of effort in to setting up a media server. i'm getting a big issue with windows being stupid and trying to use my proxy server on local addresses even though i told it not to.

    this is infuriating because it overloads my proxy server and interferes with the steaming from my media box. if i disable the proxy settings in windows it streams fine. but then i'm obviously not using my caching for the interwebs.

    there must be a simple fix that i'm overlooking but i just cant find the solution

    many thanks

    i worked it out eventually... i had ticked bypass for local addresses but i guess that only meant my own ip address and not my lan addresss range. i manually added all my ip addresses into the exceptions list and its doing the job.
