Since Minimo doesn't seem to use the default connection manager settings, at least the proxy portion, can proxy support please be added? Also it would be helpful if there was an option for username/password for proxy connections. Reproducible: Always
THe first part -- an http proxy setting -- is now in a preferences. This will be part of the 009 release. I would be happy if you could test this before 009. You can try it here: www.meer.net/~dougt/minimo_ce/eng_builds
I'll give it a shot when I'm at work tomorrow. Thanks!
No good. Under options there doesn't appear to be any way to put in the proxy server address, nor any way to do user/pass authentication. For giggles I tried a URL without entering anything, and of course it was a no-go. -Steve
No, that didn't come up. Please see the screenshot above. From your screen shot however I'm not sure it's going to work anyhow. I need username/password authentication to get it to work for me here.
oh. click next to that blue area at the top of the dialog. I haven't added pretty little icons or text to the "tabs". The dialogs are still rough. Also, the username/password should be prompted the first time you hit that proxy... I think this is the way it works in firefox too.
Bingo. Works like a dream. Will there be an option to 'save username/password'? (There might already be one, and I missed it). But yes, it works and I'm cruising the web with it right now, from behind my proxied firewall :) -Steve
yes. we will be adding a "wallet" feature soon. Glad that this worked for you. Marking fixed. The dialog will get better. Promise!!
