Concerns with 'Use alternative connection method (for NTLM authentication etc)

I find when I use SOCKS5 proxy (and maybe other ones) and use:

'Use alternative connection method (for NTLM authentication etc)'

OEP dowloands even if I put in completely fictitious servers.

I have tested extensively. Either I am going crazy or I keep finding problems...yes I am making a new project...or there is a bug?

Again, thanks in advance,

Do you have a public SOCKS server? If yes, can you let me know how this can be reproduced?

Hi Oleg,

I have just paid for a SOCKS5 Proxy service - I can forward the user ID/Password by email if you like.

But the point is, if I choose SOCKS5 proxy and check 'Use alternative connection method (for NTLM authentication etc)' then I can just make up a server name like and the download works.

Makes me wonder if OEP under these settings just ignores them and does not go through a proxy at all.

Many thanks,
