User Preference Settings


Most day-to-day VisiTrax user settings, such as sizing, font, and color preferences, are automatically maintained in your Windows user profile. For an overview of available settings, see View Options and Customization.


Internet and Proxy Settings


Selecting Internet Settings... from the View menu will present the following dialog:




In the Proxy Settings section, you can select one of the following:


Automatic ConfigurationThis option is recommended for most situations. VisiTrax will try to use the same HTTP proxy settings as your browser.
Use Specified Proxy ServerIf your browser uses a proxy configuration script, or if VisiTrax is otherwise unable to determine your browser's settings automatically, you can use this option to specify the proxy address and port.
No ProxyIf you don't want VisiTrax to use a proxy server, regardless of your browser's proxy settings, select this option. If you use a cable modem or DSL and your ISP recommends using their (optional) proxy server for your browser, selecting No Proxy here may provide better results as a given CD data server could mistakenly interpret a large number of users sharing a single proxy server as a single, very busy individual, and limit daily accesses accordingly.


The Use HTTP 1.1 protocol checkbox specifies whether to use the HTTP 1.1 protocol when accessing CD data server sites. Because HTTP 1.1 is intrinsically more reliable than the older HTTP 1.0 protocol, you should always try to use HTTP 1.1 if possible, by leaving this checkbox checked.


Even if a given CD data server supports HTTP 1.1 quite nicely, you may need to clear this checkbox (for HTTP 1.0) if your network connection to that server passes through an intermediate proxy server that still uses HTTP 1.0 this can sometimes be the case notwithstanding your own proxy settings.


Dial-Up Networking


Caution: Never attempt to make direct changes to the Windows Registry unless you're certain you know what you're doing!


VisiTrax uses the following common registry settings to determine whether your system uses dial-up networking (and whether an active dial-up session exists):


HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\EnableAutodial


Internet Explorer uses this 32-bit binary value to determine whether you use a modem to access the Internet. The value is 1 if a dial-up connection is used, otherwise 0.


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\RemoteAccess\Remote Connection


Windows 95/98 DUN sets this 32-bit flag to indicate whether an active dial-up connection exists. This flag is not created or used under Windows NT.
