Plans for SOCKS proxy support?

edited March 2017 in Windows Beta

I was wondering if there are any plans to support SOCKS proxies in 1Password 6 for Windows. So far it seems only HTTP proxies are supported.

I've tried setting my SOCKS proxy address in Internet Explorer, however 1Password still can't seem to connect over it. Even so, this is not my preferred option as my main proxy is usually HTTP (but 1Password is restricted from using it).

1Password Version: 6.4.380
Extension Version: 4.6.3
OS Version: Windows 7
Sync Type: 1Password Account

    Hi @mbesemann,

    Thanks for writing in.

    That's due to the .NET network stack we're using in 1Password 6, it doesn't support SOCKS proxy well and it doesn't like pulling the IE settings. I believe you're the first to ask about the SOCKS proxy support, I don't remember anyone asking for this before but I could be wrong.

    We'll investigate to see what we can do but it is likely we may not support SOCKS at all.
