How to set a proxy for AESU

If you are behind a proxy server on your network, this is how you go about setting up AESU to use your proxy.

Note that March of Industry itself doesn't support proxy servers, but this will at least let you update to the most recent version of the game via AESU and then you can play in offline mode.

In order for AESU to see your proxy, you need to set an environment variable all_proxy with your proxy string.

How to set all_proxy environment variable in Windows?

  1. Go to control panel
  2. System & Security
  3. System
  4. Advanced System Settings
  5. Environment Variables...
  6. Under user variables, click New...
  7. Variable Name:  all_proxy
  8. Variable value:  your proxy string (see below)
  9. Ok
  10. Restart AESU

What is my proxy string?

Some examples:

  • 127.0.0.1
  • http://127.0.0.1
  • socks5://127.0.0.1
  • socks5://127.0.0.1:8080

The proxy string may be prefixed with [scheme]:// to specify which kind of proxy is used. Use socks4://, socks4a://, socks5:// or socks5h:// (the last one to enable socks5 and asking the proxy to do the resolving) to request the specific SOCKS version to be used. No protocol specified, http:// and all others will be treated as HTTP proxies.

To specify port number in this string, append :[port] to the end of the host name.

Leave blank to use no proxy.

For help with proxy setup, please post in the forums.
