Excluded hosts

The Excluded hosts box may contain more than one exclusion range, separated by commas. Enter hosts that would automatically be excluded.

Consider proxying local host connections

Connections to the local host are never proxied, even if the proxy exclude list does not explicitly contain them. It is very unlikely that this behaviour would ever cause problems, but if it does you can change it by enabling this option.

DNS name lookup at proxy end

If you are using a proxy to access a private network, it can make a difference whether DNS name resolution is performed by WinSCP itself (on the client machine) or performed by the proxy. The DNS name lookup at proxy end configuration option allows you to control this, select between:

Automatic: WinSCP will do something it considers appropriate for each type of proxy. Telnet, HTTP and SOCKS5 proxies will have host names passed straight to them; SOCKS4 proxies will not.

No: WinSCP will always do its own DNS, and will always pass an IP address to the proxy.

Yes: WinSCP will always pass host names straight to the proxy without trying to look them up first.

Telnet/local proxy command

If you are using the Telnet proxy type, the usual command required by the firewall’s Telnet server is connect, followed by a host name and a port number. If your proxy needs a different command, you can enter an alternative here.
