I’m struggling to use maxq.


Because we use a proxy server, I have moved the address of the proxy server from the proxy setting under internet options (internet explorer under windows xp) to the maxq.properties file. In their place in internet options, I have entered ‘localhost 8090’ and then started maxq against that port address.
