Right now updater does not consider proxy settings when connecting to the update service and downloading packages.

I'll see tomorrow if it works. I could verify that bug 749352 was fixed.
I just tried with my PAYG service that require a proxy, and the whole update process worked. (wifi was disabled, I'm sure it was not wifi)
(In reply to Hub Figuiere [:hub] from comment #3) > I just tried with my PAYG service that require a proxy, and the whole update > process worked. (wifi was disabled, I'm sure it was not wifi) Really? That is surprising, because the updater doesn't pass in the proxy when opening connections. Are you sure it was using the proxy?
if it wasn't it wouldn't have worked and otherwise traffic doesn't pass through. Note that it is the proxy defined in the APN which mean that Android "services" will honour it.
Right, but my understanding is that URL.openConnection() will not use the proxy automatically. Maybe that's wrong? I wonder why it wasn't working for Taras... Hub has it always worked for you? The change in bug 749352 should not have affected the updater...
I have no idea if it worked before as I don't really use that SIM card. This is the one I have for the B2G phone that I once tried with Android.
