Well, I'm not quite sure if this belongs here but I'll give it a try anyway (as I'm quite new to java).
Basically I want to know if there is a function that will connect to a proxy that I specify.
Thanks.

Eugene, I'm not sure I know what you are asking. I just have the address of a proxy server (with the port number) and I would like to connect to it and from there go on to access some other urls.

Welcome to JavaRanch, Alex!
Perhaps the folks in the Sockets and Internet Protocols forum will have some ideas for you. I'm moving this thread there now...

You might want to try a quick search on this forum for "proxy" and/or other relevant keywords to see if a past conversation might hold the answer for you.
Note that the search page link is at the top right of this page.

Hi,
To access any other URLs on the Internet passing through a proxy, first you need to tell JVM about your proxy settings. You do that by setting system properties like this:
