The protocol used by a proxy-based firewall.
This property specifies the protocol that the provider will use to tunnel traffic through the FirewallServer proxy. Note that by default, the provider connects to the system proxy; to disable this behavior and connect to one of the following proxy types, set ProxyAutoDetect to false.
|TUNNEL||80||When this is set, the provider opens a connection to Excel and traffic flows back and forth through the proxy.|
|SOCKS4||1080||When this is set, the provider sends data through the SOCKS 4 proxy specified by FirewallServer and FirewallPort and passes the FirewallUser value to the proxy, which determines if the connection request should be granted.|
|SOCKS5||1080||When this is set, the provider sends data through the SOCKS 5 proxy specified by FirewallServer and FirewallPort. If your proxy requires authentication, set FirewallUser and FirewallPassword to credentials the proxy recognizes.|
