Update - don't actually need the wildcard for getting out onto the internet which is great. I can also enter an IP address (must have been doing it wrong) but it seems to ignore my exception when I put that URL into the browser. Any ideas as to why??

i had the same problem, well a couple actually, give me a minute i'll see if it will except it using this script i'm writing. i'll go and get a tablet, it's on my list of things to try.
My other problem was, the school uses a "-" in the web address causing it to crash ICS, this also happend on my transformer prime, so i know it's not a cheap tablet thing. Way round this is to type in the exceptions first and then add the proxy ip/address after.

Seems like it really dosn't like wild cards.
I manually edited the ipconfig.txt file with *'s, and re-uploaded it. causing it to remove the proxy all together so i've had to go back to a list of addresses.
Is yours picking up the correct dns? if not have you triple checked the address in proxy, i have no http:// just moodle.langstone-jun.portsmouth.sch.uk and this is working fine with the whole moodle with the Browser and any WebViews i have created in my own app.
Glad you found the setting though

Everything seems to be entered correctly, I can access external sites no problem. I just can't make it pick up an internal page without it taking me to our internet providers logon screen.
Proxy = 4114proxy.intra.leedslearning.net
Exception I want to work = 10.15.127.237
Just ignores it completely
Have tried it via machine name but same result. And yes the DNS is all correct (10.15.127.101)

have you tried it without being an exception? as it's an ip. I can access my internal ips (just tested) without them being in exception.

Leaving it out of the exceptions just makes it go to our external internet login portal. If I login there it then redirects me back to our internal server. Weird!
Will keep playing

Have you checked out Kytephone? It's a free app that creates a sandbox on top of the Android tablet and allows the tablet to be managed remotely. It allows the teacher (or administrator) to manage multiple tablets from a single web interface and allows them to add time limits to games as well as enable which apps to use. You can disable the Google Play store so kids won't have access to it.
You can learn more by visiting www.kytephone.com. Kytephone is completely free to use. We would appreciate your feedback.
