I have two identical laptops both set up with iTunes, one laptop works the other doesn't.
On the one that works when I click on iTunes and connect to the iTunes store I am asked for username and password for the proxy server.
On the laptop that doesn't work, iTunes try to connect but never asks for proxy details.
From the info I have found on the web it says, iTunes gets it's settings from internet explorer.
But I can't find which setting I need to change.
Here are some instructions to set proxy settings:
- Open internet explorer
- Tools menu
- Internet options
- Connections tab
- LAN settings buttom near the bottom of the page
- tick "Use a proxy server for you LAN(These settings will not apply to dial-up or VPN connections)
- In the address box enter the proxy servers hostname or ip address
- in the port box enter the port that you proxy monitors on(usually 8080)
If the laptop is connected to a domain the proxy settings can be set up via group policy: User configuration ->preferences ->control panel settings -> internet settings.
thanks for the reply.
we have the proxy settings configured via Group Policy and these are correct.
the issue is one laptop asks for credentials for the proxy and works, the other just tries without asking for credentials and fails.
what versions of iTunes on both ?
Remove the stored entry for your proxy serever.
Hope this works for you
Not 100% what you mean, but had a look at keymgr.dll and there was no reference to the proxy server.
Think I'm just going to stick with the one machine that's working.
Thanks for your help.
Sorry about that I don't know where that came from. Have a look at this instead: How to manage stored user names and passwords on a computer in a domain in Windows XP
Sorry once again
No nothing there either.
The laptop that you can't get to itunes store on, does it ask you for a username and password when you go to the internet via internet explorer??
No, getting to the internet is fine, just lets the user through.
