default-http-proxy

Arguments: ide-configuration

Returns the value of the default-http-proxy property of ide-configuration. The current IDE configuration is the value of (configuration *ide-system*); (see configuration and *ide-system*).

This property can be used for downloading patches if your site requires an HTTP proxy. The value is typically specified in the Download Patches dialog, in the four HTTP Proxy widgets in the lower right corner, just before using the dialog to download patches. It could also be set by calling (setf default-http-proxy).

The value is a list of four values for the proxy host name, port number, username, and password. Each element may be either a string or else nil to not specify a value.

The Download Patches dialog will never store the password, always leaving the fourth element as nil, for security reasons. It is highly recommended that this element never be set programmatically either, since this configuration option is saved with all of the others in the IDE's preferences file. The fourth element exists for a possible enhancement where it could hold an encrypted version of the password.
