    I have had play, but I have got a old squid proxy use that has nothing but straight proxy access so it looks like a iPad bug.

    I can't get some of the apps working on my iPAD with our smoothwall box either.

    Not that a massive problem, just strange.

    Hi Mate,
    I have done loads of stuff looking into this and spoken to a mate that is a apple tech and seems to think it looks like some apps are not picking up the proxy settings from the OS which means it looks direct. He said if you use a transparent proxy it works fine so I am going to set one up and going to try that. I let you know if I get it working : - )

    In some cases you should be able to stab "transparent" on in smoothie, and you are good to go. This can alter how NTLM auth works though, as it changes the method subtly. Additionally transparent proxies need to be in the data path to work.

    With the exception of Safari and the App Store (as far as I've tested), you can't get any app on an iPad or iPhone (tested on 4.0) to successfully use a proxy requiring ntlm auth*.

    People have been berating Apple about this for years. The underlying OS isn't set up to pass on the required details to the apps.

    *it might be any authenticating proxy, but I've only tested with ntlm.

    NTLM ain't hard to support either, libcurl supports it perfectly well. You do (on non windows/ad platforms) need to prompt for creds, but how hard can it be?

    I think it's more "urgh, that's a Windows thing, let's make a token broken effort rather than pulling our socks up and fixing it so corporate users don't hate us".

    It's a consumer-focused phone, regardless of what Apple say.

    Youtube on the iPAD uses quicktime, and from what I can remember, Quicktime does not support/recognise proxy authentication.

    I could be wrong but I thinks that is where the issue is

    We are having pretty much the same issue with Sophos WS500 and any Ipad/iphone etc trying to connect. Has anybody got a solution yet?

    For us in EMBC lands the solution was the iOS 4.2 (and then 4.2.1) update ... all down to fun and games on X.509 certificate release and so on. What version of iOS are you running?

    I have it setup on transparent proxy mode and the smoothy is my DG for that wireless VLAN and the only thing I can't get working using the smoothwall is the itunes streaming :ie movie preview, I get the "Server is not correctly configured error" I did see this as well.... https://discussions.apple.com/thread...rt=15&tstart=0

    have added itunes and apple domain names as exceptions to test as well.

    So it might be a smoothwall firewall thing for us as well.

    A transparent proxy with no authentication/identification was the only way I could get apps to work - wish I had found this thread months ago would have saved me lots of time!

    So, is a transparent proxy server with no authentication/identification appropriate to use in a school environment?

    there are fixes in the works later this month for itunes and the Youtube application. Both are workarounds for ipad idiosyncrasies. Am on holiday right now but my colleagues in presales or support will supply further info if asked!
