Some Background

10.0.2.2 is the IP address of your host system using "VPN Mode" with port forwarding (127.0.0.1).

In normal mode, you have to replace it with the corresponding IP address of the windows interface (by default: 192.168.1.101 for interface 1, 192.168.1.102 for interface 2 and so on)

Steps
  1. Start your proxy tool (e.g. Px)
  2. Log into the ctrlX COREvirtual and navigate to the proxy settings
  3. Add proxy address and save:
