Parameter Description Example
curl The CURL session handle. $curl
Value The proxy type. Pass number listed below, e.g. 1 for CURLPROXY_HTTP_1_0. 1


Returns "OK" on success.


Sets the type of the proxy.
Available options for this are CURLPROXY_HTTP (0), CURLPROXY_HTTP_1_0 (1), CURLPROXY_SOCKS4 (4), CURLPROXY_SOCKS5 (5), CURLPROXY_SOCKS4A (6) and CURLPROXY_SOCKS5_HOSTNAME (7). The HTTP type is default.

If you set proxy type to CURLPROXY_HTTP_1_0 (0), it will only affect how libcurl speaks to a proxy when CONNECT is used. The HTTP version used for "regular" HTTP requests is instead controlled with CURL.SetOptionHTTPVersion.
