    Does it come up with anything over the content? i.e. writing saying 'blocked' or anything of that nature?

    Ipads within school's have problems to do with SSL and Video streaming depending your proxy and ISP. We can browse youtube, but we cant download from the App store or go to any SSL Websites like our VLE

    Would be interesting to see a log excerpt for the iPad's attempts to access youtube. May be getting blocked for other reasons.

    Hi tom, I am using the same proxy my self and I can get there fine, and access the content, I have been doing a lot of digging and seems like a Apple thing some apps don't support proxy only direct connection and the youtube being one of them. Good old Apple strikes again.

    Hi Alan, Can you tell me if your using a automatic proxy script or manual proxy. I have been in apple forums and other people have reported this as well. So it could be a OS related thing rather then the app.

    Hi Remember this is on an iphone not an ipad. I have put the settings in manually into the iphone. I am using manual ip and on the proxy settings manual and port 801.
    but if it were for others, i would set up another port for them.
    does that help?

    forgot to say it uses a SW account to authenticate on the proxy.
