    ok, well google docs works fine once im signed into my google apps account. I can also upload to dropbox using the dropbox app.
    I can also do access e-portal which uses https

    Nothing special in the wireless settings on the ipad. Just set to dhcp and manually set the proxy.

    Im connecting through Ruckus wireless

    Hmm, If i go to docs.google.com i get "Cannot open page" "There was a problem communicating with the secure web proxy server (HTTPS)".

    I'm using Ruckus managed wireless. Connecting through a guest lan and the main one uses certificates....

    odd. works for me. im not using the guest network though.

    Ipad 2 is running IOS 5

    Here's my safari settings

    Search Engine - Google
    Autofll - Off
    Private Browsing - Off
    Fraud Warning - On
    Javascript - On
    Block Popups - On

    I've cleared all browsing data and tried again.

    When I go to docs.google.com I get a mobile version of the login page

    just simply point it to the proxy. No certificates.
    Im running a zone Director 1000 and it hasnt been updated in ages. simply because it just works at the moment and i dont want to go messing about with it.

    I'm confuzzled.

    It's pointing to proxy. My zonedirector is a slightly newer i think.

    Now just cant decide if its external or my wireless setup.

    The other difference is i am running through a vlan. Would be interesting to see if its works ok at the other building on their bog standard AP's......
