Use Windows Live Essentials behind a authenticated proxy. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I am on a university network which provides internet access behind a proxy. This proxy requires authentication (i.e., username and password). I have already put proper proxy settings in IE9 and it works perfectly. It asks for username and password whenever I try to access internet. However, Windows Live Essentials seems to have problems. It neither asks for proxy nor syncs the mail. (Other Windows Live applications straightway say that the connection is not available!) I don't understand what is wrong. I have tried direct internet connection (without any proxy) and it works. However, this connection is very slow and unstable. So, I'd like to connect via proxy. Any help?

    Edit: Its now dramatically started to ask for authentication details for squid caching proxy! Still, doesn't sync mail throwing error that Deltasync server is not available!
