Windows 7 activation through a Smoothwall proxy
I'm having a bit of a nightmare activating Windows 7 through our Smoothie box. The error code received is 0x8004fe33 and, according to Activation fails when you try to activate Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 over the Internet it is a problem with the proxy connection.
I've tried adding an exception for all the sites listed but that doesn't seem to have worked. The logs also don't seem to show the box hitting any of those sites wither. Any ideas? :confused:
BTW - Since I only need to activate two machines at present I don't want to sort out a KMS server yet. I know I can totally unfilter them but it's beside the point as it should work and it would be handy to have it working anyway.
