Hi guys,
Just wondering if anyone has managed to get Moviestorm to work on an authenticated proxy - i.e a proxy which requires a username and password.

I am trying to install Moviestorm to use in a school in Australia and have managed to isolate the proxy settings and port, however I am stuck on authentication. Our proxy requires a unique username and password, usually the following format works:

"http://my.name:passw...lah.blah:port#"

however, i've tried different combinations of these in boot-win.properties (http & https) and every configuration i try ends with Moviestorm hanging on the splash screen for about 20 seconds before bringing up the log in window and telling me it cant connect when i press ok.

NOW, the one configuration that results in the log in screen being displayed almost immediately is:

http.proxyHost=proxy.blah.blah.blah.au
http.proxyPort=port#
https.proxyHost=proxy.blah.blah.blah.au
https.proxyPort=port#

This leads me to believe that SOMETHING is happening, it is recognising the proxy, it's just not asking me for authentication. Is there a particular format I could use to insert my username and password into the proxy settings which will allow me to continue?

Thanks,
Mr Merrick

I have been able to put in the IP address of my proxy server and it seems to work fine at my school. When we log into a computer we become authenticated in the system so use of the proxy does not require us to add a name to get through.

Hope this helps. What part of Australia is your school? Our school is actively involved in a WIKI communications project with the Kinross Wolaroi School in Orange, NSW.

Hi,
I am in Armidale which is in the New England region, about half way between Newcastle and Brisbane on the east coast.
I'm really stuck on this authentication, at the moment it's preventing me from using it at school with a multimedia class. Perhaps one of the developers/staff members can throw in on this and we can discover whether proxy authentication is even possible with Moviestorm.

P.S. How often do MS staff check their email?...

It doesnt appear that the code currently has anything that sets a proxy autherisation. I've added a feature request for this, but I'm not sure when it would go in.

I suspect that we check email most weekdays.

Dave's put in some code that might work (but we dont have a good way of testing yet, so your feedback will be very useful)

As well as putting in entries for:
http.proxyHost=
http.proxyPort=
https.proxyHost=
https.proxyPort=

you will need
http.proxy.auth.user=
http.proxy.auth.password=

with the username and password for the proxy.

This wont work till you get 1.2.0.3 (released today, but might be tricky due to the lack of connection), or a new version of the launcher which we should hopefully put up on the website real soon (will post in this thread when we have).

The new installers are available from the 'Free Download' button at the top of the page.

You might need to re-do the proxy information after installing patches, as I think one of the patches overwrites the boot-win.properties and boot-mac.properties (or maybe only the mac one).

Let us know if it works, please.
