I keep getting a timeout when trying to connect through my proxy. See for implementation guidance.

If it is supposed to already support, more info: http proxy, setup in env variables as http_proxy and within Window's IE proxy settings (which set the global settings seen by the tip)

    Hi Rob,

    thanks for your email. Allowing to set a proxy is on the todo list for beaTunes 3. I simply won't be able to still incorporate that into the 2.1 branch.
