    -Dhttp.proxyPort=YourHttpProxyPort # Specify the port number of your proxy server.
    -Dhttp.nonProxyHost="localhost||192.168.0" # Specify a list of hosts separated by "|" that do not require access through your proxy server.
    -DsocksProxyHost=YourSocksProxyHost # Specify the host name or IP address of your SOCKS proxy server.
