You don't exactly "configure lynx."  Proxies need to be set up as environment
variables for Lynx to use them.  The way you will define it will depend on
your shell (Unix).  In .cshrc, put an entry like:
        setenv http_proxy "";
where "" is the real IP of your proxy server, and the port.

Sorry, but I know nothing about how this is done on Windows or DOS.



It seems that what I have been calling "pseudo-proxies" are not documented.
I have no time to do documentation anymore, so I'll mention in passing that
they are set up basically the same way as "real" proxies.  An example I have
on hand is:
        setenv sjhttp_proxy 'lynxcgi://localhost/home/hn/.lynxcgi/'
where "" is a shell script which converts X0201 kana to X0208 kana
so that Lynx doesn't get zonked.  (Not necessary anymore?)  The only manual
part of this is editing (use "E" command) the URL to change the protocol from
"http" (or other) to "sjhttp."  I _think_ you can do the same thing by
applying the "Cern rules" which Tom mentioned yesterday or the day before.
