    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

    Hey guys,

    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.

    I know this thread is a bit old BUT a school i support has just purchased a number of these learnpad devices and are banging their head against a brick wall with Link2ICT! Need to open port 5228 (and 5229, 5230 from what i have read elsewhere) BUT LInk2ICT say they cant unless they have the Google IPs!?! However are these dynamic OR fixed IPs? Any help would be greatly appreciated as the i feel this is required for these devices to work correctly for the school?

    Cheers!

    Google's ip's

    Code:
    nslookup -q=TXT _netblocks.google.com 8.8.8.8
    Server: 8.8.8.8
    Address: 8.8.8.8#53

    Non-authoritative answer:
    _netblocks.google.com text = "v=spf1 ip4:216.239.32.0/19 ip4:64.233.160.0/19 ip4:66.249.80.0/20 ip4:72.14.192.0/18 ip4:209.85.128.0/17 ip4:66.102.0.0/20 ip4:74.125.0.0/16 ip4:64.18.0.0/20 ip4:207.126.144.0/20 ip4:173.194.0.0/16 ~all

    I've got these from a few months ago.

    Google play ips.jpg

    Funny, I'm on a Link2 connection and SUDDENLY after about 6 months of them telling me they couldn't do it, Google Play started downloading ALL OF A SUDDEN !!!!!

    Unusual that eh !!??!!

    This was about 9 months ago. Get them to open port 5228 TCP and UDP. I think the chap I was speaking to was called Richard (i think). He was at Service Birmingham though, not Link2. Give them a hard time, not Link2, u might get somewhere. Ours is Rookery School if they want to cross check the config.


    Daft question but have u set the proxy on them ??? - EDIT - You have, That was a daft question !!!!
