    Puffin browser blocked by firewall

    Hi, we're attempting to use Puffin by Cloudmosa on our school's network but it fails to connect despite adding proxy settings. We have contacted SITSS who are unable to find the reason because there is a lack of technical information available about this app which we use on iPads. Any ideas?
    Puffin has successfully enabled us to use Flash on iPads off of the school network. We want to bring it inhouse so that children to access Sam Learning activities on the school iPads.

    We have found an issue with Puffin Browser.

    I don't know if you are blocking sites like Facebook and Twitter for the students, within school, but if you are Puffin Browser will allow unrestricted access to these sites and any others you may have blacklisted.

    We are actually trying to find a way of blocking the use of Puffin Browser.

    Just something to think about!
