    hen I refresh Core Control my settings appear but they are in orange. What does this Orange highlight mean? Are my proxy settings working?

    Orange simply means non-default.

    It should be worth noting, that WordPress only supports HTTP proxies, not Socks proxies (which I believe 3128 = squid? is likely to be).

    You’ll find some more documentation of setting up proxies in the code here: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/trunk/wp-includes/class-http.php#L1184

    The proxy server may need to be modified to allow WordPress to pass through differently, which might not be possible in every environment I agree.

    If you end up in the position where you can’t get external access to work at all, you may define ‘WP_HTTP_BLOCK_EXTERNAL’ to true to short-circuit external http requests to avoid timeout issues.

    Thank you for your response & pointing me towards the documentation. I will try to apply the correct settings and let you know how I go.

    thanks again –
