The Internet Proxy Options dialog allows you to modify the proxy settings used by Security Controls when accessing the Internet using your Web browser. In general, Security Controls checks the proxy settings in Internet Explorer and conducts an Internet connectivity test to determine whether or not proxy server settings are necessary. If Security Controls is unable to access the Internet using these settings, or if you are required to enter a user name and password each time you launch your browser and browse the Internet, you will need to configure the proxy options.
