A proxy is an intermediary body between you and a client server. You can make changes to a proxy server using the CMD tool, also known as the Command Prompt. The reg add command gives you access to your system registry via the Command Prompt. Using the command, you can enable, disable as well as alter your proxy server. Note that you will need administrative rights to complete this task.
