    Apple TV and Proxies?

    I'm looking to get a set of Apple TV gizmo's for the school to go with my Ipad 1's, and I've heard there's a problem with getting these things to work over a proxy.

    Anyone got any knowledge of this?
    Got wired and wireless networking, proxy is a non-authentication setup run by LEA/council, just an address and port number.

    Last thing I want to do is spend £100 per item on something that doesn't work because of stupid tech limitations.

    bump, I'm looking to order these today.

    Has noone here used one of these things in a proxy environment that can say if it can/cannot do proxies?

    It runs iOS like the iPad and iPhone. They both support proxies so i cant see why this cant. On my iPhone i have to use a .pac file to allow exceptions.

    If you can wait til I get home this evening, I can look at mine and see if there's a place to set a proxy.

    Bump again, I really could do with an answer on this. I can't seem to confirm or deny proxy workings on them yet.

    There is not a way of doing it at the moment. https://discussions.apple.com/message/4325656#4325656 is one discussion about it, but you can also set the gateway as a transparent proxy which does the work for you (eg Smoothwall, a managed wireless controller, etc).

    You can do it now with the Apple Configurator. Set up a profile with the proxy details in and apply it to the device. I've just got mine working in about 10 minutes.
