NAME

       CURLOPT_PROXYTYPE - proxy protocol type

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_PROXYTYPE, long type);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass one of the values below to set the type of the proxy.

              CURLPROXY_HTTP
                     HTTP Proxy. Default.

              CURLPROXY_HTTPS
                     HTTPS Proxy. (Added in 7.52.0 for OpenSSL, GnuTLS and NSS)

              CURLPROXY_HTTP_1_0
                     HTTP  1.0  Proxy.  This  is  very  similar  to CURLPROXY_HTTP except it uses
                     HTTP/1.0 for any CONNECT tunnelling. It does not change the HTTP version  of
                     the actual HTTP requests, controlled by CURLOPT_HTTP_VERSION(3).

              CURLPROXY_SOCKS4
                     SOCKS4 Proxy.

              CURLPROXY_SOCKS4A
                     SOCKS4a Proxy. Proxy resolves URL hostname.

              CURLPROXY_SOCKS5
                     SOCKS5 Proxy.

              CURLPROXY_SOCKS5_HOSTNAME
                     SOCKS5 Proxy. Proxy resolves URL hostname.

       Often  it  is  more  convenient  to  specify  the  proxy  type with the scheme part of the
       CURLOPT_PROXY(3) string.

         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROXY, "local.example.com:1080");
         /* set the proxy type */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROXYTYPE, CURLPROXY_SOCKS5);
