[Qtwebengine] QT 5.9. Issues with QWebEngine

I did some tests by changing browser settings (like chrome).
And the changes in browser settings are directly reflected in QT.

-          Remove proxy in Browser. -> webengine is able to load local urls but NOT internet URLs

-          Add proxy in browser -> webengine is able to load  internet URLs but NOT local URLs

-          If I set the proxy in browser and check to ignore local addresses, browser works fine for both local and internet addresses. I am expecting same functionality from QWebEngine. Please suggest if it is possible.

Thanks for your prompt response.
Can you please suggest where does webengine  takes settings from when I set networkproxy  to use system settings.?
And how can I make webengine to ignore proxy for local addresses ?

QtWebEngine will use Qt proxy settings, which defaults to whatever Qt picks up
from the system settings. We do not read Chrome settings.

Best regards
