Using Chrome on Windows with a different proxy server than the system one (which is used by Internet Explorer)

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/10/25

By default, Chrome uses the same proxy server as Internet Explorer: the system one that your Chrome settings page accesses from chrome://settings/search#proxy through this command-line call:

"C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe" C:\Windows\system32\shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL C:\Windows\system32\inetcpl.cpl,,4

There is no GUI way inside Chrome to change this, but there is a command-line parameter: --proxy-server="ipaddress:port"

So create a new shortcut to Chrome, then you can change it.

This comes in very handy if you want to test

  • some sessions through for instance Internet Explorer going through HTTP Fiddler (that defaults at localhost:8888)
  • other sessions through Cntlm (that defaults to localhost:3128)

Some background information:

Printing WordPress receipts in Chrome resulting in strangely accented text turned out to be a Chrome issue

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/02

This appeared to be a Chrome thing: [WayBack] Jeroen Pluimers at Twitter: “@wordpressdotcom not sure what goes wrong with billing, but the printed html has odd domain characters. The viewed HTML is OK, but I cannot print that because printing garbles it. I can DM you the receipt links. Similar for the date which becomes unreadable (the IRS dislikes it).…”
