Cant provide proxy setting

URLs have spaces as I am unable to post this thread with too many urls
Hi, I am trying to deploy small app on pythonanywhere,
let me explain with code,

from dotenv import load_dotenv
from pinecone import Pinecone
from langchain_openai import OpenAIEmbeddings
from langchain.vectorstores import Pinecone as PineconeVectorStore

pc = Pinecone(api_key='xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx',proxy_url='http://proxy . server : 3128')
embeddings = OpenAIEmbeddings()

vectorstore_from_docs = PineconeVectorStore.from_existing_index(index_name="michaeles", embedding=embeddings)

I need to add prxy url to pinecone, and its totally possible by giving proxy_url to Pinecone, but when I execute PineconeVectorStore.from_existing_index() I get pinecone errors that are related to proxy, here are errors:

HTTPSConnectionPool(host='api . pinecone . io', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /indexes (Caused by NewConnectionError('<urllib3.connection.HTTPSConnection object at 0x7fb9c4385870>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 111] Connection refused'))

as I remember in previous pinecone versions, we can provide proxy in url and then we can use these functions directly from pinecone rather than with langchain.vectorstores

import Pinecone as PineconeVectorStore like below,
openapi_config = OpenApiConfiguration.get_default_copy()
openapi_config.proxy = "http:// proxy . server : 3128"

    api_key="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx",  # find at
    environment="us-west4-gcp-free",  # next to api key in console
index_name = "pf1"

docsearch = Pinecone.from_texts([t.page_content for t in texts], embeddings, index_name=index_name)

I want to do something like this above code that worked for me in the past.
can someone please help me with this, will downgrading pinecone will help?

@clyde.hunter1984 post hints how to do this.

Here is the full code.

from pinecone import Pinecone
from langchain_openai import OpenAIEmbeddings
from langchain_pinecone import PineconeVectorStore

embeddings = OpenAIEmbeddings()

pc = Pinecone(api_key='XXXXXX',

index = pc.Index('test')

vectorstore = PineconeVectorStore(index=index, embedding=embeddings)
vectorstore.add_texts(['hello pinecone index'])

The key point is that the index argument will take a Pinecone Index object and index_name takes a string, then connects to the Pinecone Index for you.

So, if you ever need to use an argument that is only in the Pinecone client, you can use the approach above.

Please ensure you are using the latest version of both LangChain and the pinecone-client, as the code snippet earlier had a mix of old and new function calls.
