Connect Smart TV through proxy server?

by GordoFreeman / August 28, 2012 9:21 PM PDT

Is there a way to connect a Samsung Smart TV (UN46ES6100 ) through a proxy server?
I can see an IP section but it also has DNS etc so I'm windering how best to do this.

Hey GordoFreeman,

By using manual settings, you should be able to configure it. Are you have trouble doing so?

But the settings are for connecting to a local network or setting a fixed IP.
I need to connect to a proxy outside of my LAN ie on
There doesn't seem to be a proxy setting anywhere?

If this is to get around restrictions on content by location, the makers are probably not able to help as they must abide by government rules and more. There is no legitimate reason to use a proxy except to break a rule about location so far.

I don't expect any maker to support this.

Hey GordoFreeman,

Oh sorry about that. Going to have to back pedal slightly on this one, you can't put the proxy settings on your TV istelf, but can do what you want through 3rd party solutions, and you'll need to connect the TV with manual settings to those solutions. Sorry I can't be more specific.

This is really annoying. I purchased the TV to view a website internal to my own network, but because we use a proxy to connect to the internet here it won't work. I can't view the internal website either because it keeps telling me that the settings fail if it can't find the internet.

Just a few thoughts.

Did you try Virtual Router on some PC to make the internet connection look like a normal one?

Folk have asked this before here so I'll just give their results here.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
