When you send messages to the Internet support or check for program updates, MetaTexis connects to the Internet. There are two techniques which can be used for Internet connections:
· Winsock: When this option is selected, MetaTexis uses the build-in Winsock functions of Windows to connect to the Internet. If you use Winsock for Internet connections, you can set further options via the Options and Proxy buttons. These are explained in detail below.
· Internet Explorer: When this option is selected, MetaTexis uses the functions provided by the Internet Explorer to connect to the Internet.
Usually, connections via Winsock are faster. For this reason, this is the default setting. However, in some cases (especially when specific Proxy settings are needed), you might have to select the Internet Explorer.
