This method is not as secure as using Firefox, however, it may come in handy if you would like to use the proxy with a web application, or a web browser such as Chrome or Edge. This method will affect your entire system’s network and will apply the proxy to it.
Step 1: Click the Apple logo in the upper left corner of your screen, then click System Preferences.
Step 2: Click on Network.
Step 3: Click the Advanced… button.
Step 4: Click on the Proxies tab.
Step 5: Enable Auto Proxy Configuration.
Step 6: Under Proxy Configuration File, type “http://localhost:8888/pac” in the URL field.
The 8888 after localhost is the port number that you are connected to (the port number 8888 in the example may vary from the port number you use; refer to the Running TQ Proxy Server section if needed).
Step 7: Click OK.
Step 8: Click Apply in the bottom right of the Network window.
Step 9: To ensure that the proxy is working properly, run a speed test at https://www.speedtest.net/ to see if your location, ISP and IP address has changed.
