    I’ve just upgraded to version 7.4 (Linux and Windows) and it looks like the proxy configuration has changed, or I’m being stupid.

    In the past I was able to configure a separate proxy for each connection, but now I can only have one global proxy setting?

    One single proxy doesn’t work for me, I need different proxy settings for different clients. The only workaround I’ve found is to manually edit the connection files using a text editor, which is not friendly 🙂

    Am I missing something?

    Hi. Version 7 introduced a big overhaul of the graphical user interfaces, and among those changes the proxy settings were moved from connection to client configuration. We understand your need, however adding also the configuration of the proxy in connection settings would be slightly confusing and impact the usability improvements we did to cover the most generic user needs.
    You could try a different solution not requiring to edit connection files, by using the client command line option --config to select a custom configuration file. Configure the proxy and rename the file %USERPROFILE%\.nx\config\player.cfg (Windows path) for every configuration you need. Create a shortcut by copy-pasting the one created by default on desktop, edit properties of the new shortcut and add the option --config C:\Users\<username>\.nx\config\<config filename>.cfg to the Target field. You can name the shortcut to identify the proxy configuration and use it. This is the procedure for Windows, but on Linux and Mac it’s very similar.
