How can I manually set proxy settings in Python Selenium?

We can manually set proxy settings using Selenium webdriver in Python. It is done using the DesiredCapabilities class. We would create an object of this class and apply the add_to_capabilities method to it. Then pass the proxy capabilities as a parameter to this method.


Code Implementation

from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.common.proxy import ProxoxyType

#add proxy’s ip and port
p = '<proxy ip, port>'
pxy = Proxy()

#set proxy type
pxy.p_type = ProxyType.MANUAL

#http proxy
pxy.http_pxy = p

#ssl proxy
pxy.ssl_pxy = p

#object of DesiredCapabilities
c = webdriver.DesiredCapabilities.CHROME

#set proxy browser capabilties

#set chromedriver.exe path
driver = webdriver.Chrome(executable_path="C:\chromedriver.exe", desired_capabilities = c)

#launch URL

#quit browser
