Thank you, this works great for e.g.

"Download to local PDB file"

but as it seems not for

"Load into new molecule in VMD".

Response: "Error loading PDB: couldn't open socket: connection timed out"

Hmm. What's the difference?

Best Regards,

Betreff: Re: vmd-l: vmd and proxy settings
  Proxies are configured via the Tcl http package. You should be able to
configure your proxy in your VMD .vmdrc file with commands similar to these:
  package require http
  ::http::config -proxyhost
  ::http::config -proxyport 80 
Read more about using "::http::config" for proxies here:
