CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD man page

CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD ā€” user name and password to use for proxy authentication

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD, char *userpwd);

Description

Pass a char * as parameter, which should be [user name]:[password] to use for the connection to the HTTP proxy. Both the name and the password will be URL decoded before use, so to include for example a colon in the user name you should encode it as %3A. (This is different to how CURLOPT_USERPWD(3) is used - beware.)

Use CURLOPT_PROXYAUTH(3) to specify the authentication method.

The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this option.

Default

This is NULL by default.

Protocols

Used with all protocols that can use a proxy

Example

CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
if(curl) {
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com/foo.bin");
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROXY, "http://localhost:8080");
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD, "clark%20kent:superman");
  ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
  curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
}

Availability

Always

Return Value

Returns CURLE_OK if proxies are supported, CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not, or CURLE_OUT_OF_MEMORY if there was insufficient heap space.
