Proxy Authentication

Dec 31, 2008 at 10:57 AM
Hi There.  I really like the tool, however I would like to make a suggestion.  The addin does not work if you are using blend behind a firewall due to needing proxy authentication.
Can I suggest that the next version has the facility to set the proxy parameters as part of the addin parameters, or possibly through a configuration file.
Cheers

Hi Steve,

There is a version of the code (not a release) that might work for you to get around the proxy authentication being required. It's not configurable, but does work through my work proxy. If you want I can email it to you (pm me on this), or you can build it yourself via the code in changeset 5979 onwards on the source code page: http://www.codeplex.com/colorful/SourceControl/ListDownloadableCommits.aspx

Hi Steve,

The most recent downloads (for blend 4 - http://colorful.codeplex.com/releases/view/44310 and 3 - http://colorful.codeplex.com/releases/view/41092) both include a way to set the proxy, if you right click on the logo of the provider you have selected (i.e. the Kuler or ColorLovers logo) you can select a setting called 'Configure proxy...' in there you can add the address of your corporate proxy and it should work.

Cheers
