    Kindle & Proxy

    We are a school in Lancashire and we use lancsngfl for filtering (netsweeper) and use a proxy. Is there any way to use Kindle’s when using a proxy server?

    They can only be used with transparent proxies unfortunately.

    The Kindle Fire will work, but I don't think plain Kindles will.

    I’ve now had some time to mess around with our Kindle Fire HD. Connected it up to our WIFI put in our proxy settings and it’s up and running. The next headache is I have created an account but the school want to buy 30 kindles. Is there a way to have a “master account” and buy a book (x 30 copies) and have them filter down to all 30 kindles?

    I E-mailed amazon and this is the reply I got

    "“Hello

    I understand you would like to know if you can manage 30 Kindle's under 1-account.

    I apologise for the misunderstanding caused.

    As of now there is no limit on the number of Kindle's you can register under one account.

    However the limit on the number of times Kindle content can be downloaded to a registered Kindle device or application varies.

    Publishers determine how many copies of each title can be downloaded to different Kindle devices or applications at the same time so there may be limits on the number of devices (usually six) that can simultaneously have a single book or Kindle active content title.

    If the limit is less than six Kindles for a specific title, you'll see the message "Simultaneous Device usage: Up to X simultaneous devices, per publisher limits" on the website detail page. Currently Kindle subscriptions cannot be automatically delivered to the Home Screen of more than one device. You can download your Kindle subscription to another device from the Archived Items on that Kindle if both devices are registered to the same account.

    So in this case, Some books may have license limit allowing you to share books only to 6 devices. You can deliver most of the content to 6 devices simultaneously.

    While I cannot make this change for you personally, I have passed your feedback/feature request you had to go through in this situation to the relevant department for consideration and improvements.

    Customer feedback like yours helps us continue to improve the service and products we provide.

    Please feel free to forward further comments and suggestions about Kindle to kindle-feedback@amazon.co.uk.

    Each suggestion will be read and taken into consideration.

    Again, Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience this situation is causing you.

    Thanks for your interest in Amazon Kindle.


    Warmest regards,
    Jobin”
