Look at this guide to configure proxy for Kindle
Configuring proxy settings for Kindle Fire HD
I have been asked to get kindles working at our school.
We have an upstream proxy which is required to access anything internet based.
I understand (and have read quite a few threads on edugeek) that I require a transparent proxy to allow the kindles to work.
I setup Smoothwall Express 3.1 RC3 - the kindles can browse the internet fine - but registering them and downloading books to them does not work.
From what I have read Smoothwall Express will not allow https traffic to work (and I believe this is what is stopping the kindles working correctly).
Does the full smoothwall software / hardware work correctly with kindles?
Any ideas would be helpful - or if the full smoothwall does work correctly could someone from smoothwall contact me please about pricing etc. Taaaaaa
What sort of kindles? keyboard, paperwhite, fire?
I'm sure I've read here somewhere that even with a transparent proxy the e-book only ones still don't play nicely.
It was for some Kindle 4's... (about 200!)
And I gave up trying as they wanted it doing quickly.... lol
I just ordered a separate unfiltered broadband line so the kindles can use that. (Parental locking the kindles so they cannot browse unfiltered internet)
I used ipcop's transparent firewall, but Notts' 1c1n allows https connections without going through a proxy, so for those connections it works anyway.
