    OK, fixed it. The trick (in embc) is that if you set a proxy in IE it doesn't work, but will happily prompt you to enter your proxy settings when it fails to connect, even though you don't need to set one.

    What a bunch of arse.

    Yeah, I mean the downloads from Internet to the server, not the client - the client worked fine and couldn't care less about proxies. The servers error messages were "unintuitive" to the point where I was hoping for a "remotely stab the developer" option hidden somewhere.

    Can you help me!

    I had no problems running this before, but I've come to do it again and now I'm getting the problem where the Server Software is saying I need to enter a proxy but nothing I put in works.

    It used to work this is what I don't understand!

    Delete the file in the Exambase program directory called myproxy.xml (or similar) and remove any* proxy settings from Internet explorer.

    Then make it connect again. This worked for me using any IP address, ymwocv

    *even if you'd normally need them.

    I ended up restarting and that's sorted it. Thankyou thought I'll bear it in mind.

    Re: Edexcel Exambase Testing Software

    I've just had to re-install the client on another two boxes and I cannot for the life of me remember how I fixed the problem

    I didn't happen to mention to anyone how I fixed the problem?
