In the case that you do not have a direct internet connection you may get "Host Not Found" exceptions during the runtime of VANTED. This error might appear, e.g. while loading a KEGG Pathway.
It may then be neccessary, to specify proxy information.
This may be done from the Java Webstart control panel, or may be done programatically with a BSH script, as described below:
Create a file setproxy.bsh in your home folder.
Modify the following commands as needed and type them in:
//@runonce:setproxy System.setProperty("proxyHost", "webcache.mydomain.com"); System.setProperty("proxyPort", "8080");
The domain name (webcache...) and the proxy port (8080) should be modified to reflect your network settings.
