[AG-TECH] Using a Proxy Server with AG3

Generator Microsoft Word 11 (filtered medium) I' m helping this same user get his AG3 client working via a proxy server.

I' ve got him to amend the preferences files, and the client can now connect to the proxy, but a second problem has arisen which may not be fixable. His comment is below:

For staff to access the internet from a local laptop they have to put in the domain/username and then there password. And in most programs where you can put proxy details in there is generally a section for authentication. As there isn' t a section I get a feeling that this just isn' t going to work over our network... Is there a fix, patch or a suggestion to this issue?

Does anyone have any experience of this type of proxy?

Regards, Ben.

Hi Ben,

Yep it' s been doing it since AG3.1 beta 1 and I have no idea why. The only thing I can do is, if I need to make any preferences changes, to then edit the preferences file and change the proxy port number manually. I submitted a bug on the issue but haven' t had any response yet.



P.s Sorry about the previous message. Hit the wrong button!!

When a proxy server is configured within Tools / Preferences / Network, and a port number is specified, after saving the configuration, this port number is set to zero.

Has anyone else seen this, or does anyone know why this happens?

Regards, Ben.
