UCL off-campus proxy settings?

edited February 18, 2018
Hello everyone,

I went back to Zotero after a short love story with Paperpile (a great software, but still in need of some adjustments before it can compete with Zot).

I was spoiled, though, by the easiness of their proxy setting - seamless auto-setting, and I had to log in on the proxy once every other day, and then I could easily download almost everything with a single click even when I was off-campus.

With Zotero 5.0, things does seem more complicated than that (?). On the plugin documentation (https://www.zotero.org/support/connector_preferences#proxies_preferences), the process seems a piece of cake, since the plugin is supposed to prompt you if you want to save a proxy access whenever it detects one. Only, it doesn't seem to detect UCL proxy.

I tried to fumble with the proxy settings of the (Chrome) plugin, following guidelines for previous versions of Zotero (https://wiki.ucl.ac.uk/display/LibraryServices/Zotero+and+UCL+Library+resources):


But to no avail. I tried to use the URL that appears on Paperpile:


But still nothing.

Any help out there ?
