IE Proxy in Version 2.4
Posted: Mon Jun 08, 2009 12:25 pm
I have upgraded from 2.2d to 2.4 and now when I select items from the feed I do not get prompted for my proxy username and password and the items don't display in the lower window. It doesn't appear to be using the IE proxy settings.
I have uninstalled 2.4 and reinstalled 2.2d and all is back to normal.
I would like to use the newer version but without it working will not be able to do so.
Any help gratefully received.

2.2?! You're really stretching my memory...
With 2.4, proxy settings are configured by opening the Program Options, going to the Advanced tab, an the button is in the top-right corner.

Thanks for your reply. I have set those settings which work fine for updating the feeds. It is when selecting an item in the feed which shows in the lower pane that I get "this program cannot display the web page" which is shown immediately and the proxy logs show that the request is not authenticated. With the same settings in the older version it displays fine.

Mate, you scared the living daylights out me
Not only was I seeing the same thing, but it was also happening in 2.3. I was tearing (what's left of) my hair out trying to figure out what was going on since Awasu never actually did anything wrt to configuring the proxy for the browser pane so I couldn't understand why it had suddenly stopped working. It took a stroke of inspired guesswork for me to realize what was going on
Awasu introduced a new option (apparently some time between 2.2 and 2.3
If you turn these back on (Program Options, Display tab, click on the Properties button to the right of where it says "Internet Explorer" in the top-right corner, then untick <i>Disable dialog boxes</i>), IE will start asking for your proxy details again.
I can't believe no-one's reported this since 2.3 came out (April 2007!)
Thanks for letting us know.

Excellent. That sounds like a winner. I'll give it a try when I am back in the Office next week.
