How do Rev internet libraries work?

Hi Tiemo,

I don't remember if Rev's internet library is just implemented in
transcript or not.  However, if you are using a hostname instead of an
IP address when you are connecting to your server, then it will be
using the DNS configured in Windows.

When it comes to proxies, you can explicitly set the proxy address using:

set the HTTPProxy to host:portNumber

Obviously, if you're not doing that then I don't think you are going
to be using a proxy server if there is one and if it is configured in
Windows networking.
