1 General

This section allows you to enter details of your Proxy Server. As the settings on this page are self-explanatory, minimal explanation is given. Kodi does not require a Proxy to operate.

Note: Kodi does not provide a Proxy service. It is up to the user to locate and setup a suitable Proxy Service if one is required.

Note: Kodi does not have settings to adjust Internet access. That is the responsibility of the underlying Operating System. If you have connectivity issues check the Internet settings, firewall and anti-virus settings in your Operating System.
