[AG-TECH] Potential Authentication Proxy "work around" for getting Unicast Bridge Listing

Hi Jason,

Thanks for the info.

I have one question though. If an AG3 client has to pass through an authenticating proxy, how would it connect to a meeting in the first place, regardless of whether or not it retrieves a list of bridges?

I'm asking on behalf of a user who cannot connect to the venue server 'apparently' due to the fact that you cannot specify a proxy username/password within the network preferences of the client. This same user claims to be able to specify such settings within other applications that bypass his proxy OK.

Cheers, Ben.

This may interest some of those who have problems obtaining a unicast bridge listing due to an authenticated proxy issue.

I have posted a "Potential Authentication Proxy "work around" for getting Unicast Bridge Listing" up on the AG website which can be found at http://www.accessgrid.org/node/1086.

I hope some of you find this useful.

Note: comments and suggestion are always welcomed to improve the documentation.
