Can't find peers behind proxy

I can’t find any swarm peers.
Is it because I visit the Internet through proxy?
How to config http proxy?

I don’t know enough of what’s going on on your end to be able to say-- but note ipfs does not use http so it won’t follow http proxy settings. depending on setup, it may follow vpn settings, but that’s different.

And-- i think the reason this question was not answered in the beginning is that is way too vague. it’s hard for us to know what you mean precisely. your description in is better, thanks.

1. “ipfs does not use http”? http proxy has CONNECT method.
2. What about socks configuration? What will be correct format in place of /ipv4/
3. What about onion bootstrap nodes?
