Tools -> options.

Click on the advance tab (Looks like a gear) and then the network tab under that.

Then click "Settings".  this will open up your proxy configuration window.  Check the radio button that says "Manual Proxy Configuration" and enter the ip address in the first box and the port in the 2nd.

It might be smarter to simply not get banned from your "favorite" forum.
