Hi Bill (btw great avatar)
Yes I have seen proxy setting being dropped on earlier versions of Outlook Connector - for example users who travel from office (need proxy) to home (dont need proxy). I'm at the latest version now on several Jive instances and can't report if this issue is better at this time.
Haven't seen any evidence of the proxy being picked-up from a browser - does it claim to? (how could it (easily) as Outlook isn't accessed in a browser, how would the connector know which browser to look at? perhaps use the default browser?)
More worringly have seen the manually input proxy setting being trashed on several occasions and have reported this to Offisync dev.
I have an update on this….
· Jive did make some changes to the Outlook and Office Connectors to pull the proxy settings from your browser automatically. This should help make configuration easier for users and you will not need to set it up.
· However, there was a bug in the software and it was not picking it up.
· I worked with Jive yesterday (Wed Dec 14) and they got me the latest client version of both connectors…and all is good in the world now. Both connectors are working great. (Client v1.1.1 (10.1.24) for the Outlook piece)
