    We have built an APP which relies on the internet explorer API, we are using "InternetSetOption" to set per session proxy.

    Something like this:

    options[1] = new INTERNET_PER_CONN_OPTION
    {
    dwOption = (int)INTERNET_PER_CONN_OptionEnum.INTERNET_PER_CONN_PROXY_SERVER,
    Value = { pszValue = Marshal.StringToHGlobalAnsi(proxyServer) }
    };



    HTTP proxies work fine but when we try to use SOCKS5 it's not working for us. To use socks we tried this:

    socks=server:port
    AND
    socks://socks=server:port

    without any luck...

    Does anyone have any experience getting SOCKS5 to work with InternetSetOption ?
