On my network, I have to use a proxy server for HTTP. I
set Feedreader to get the settings from Internet
Explorer, and it has done this correctly.
The program is able to download feed descriptions with
no problems, but when I click on the feed in the "My
Feeds" list, the icon changes to a red cross, and the
"HTTP/1.1 502 Proxy Error ( The ISA Server denies the
specified Uniform Resource Locator (URL) )"
I get this same message in Mozilla if I set it not to
use the proxy server. So it seems that Feedreader is
not using the proxy settings to download the feeds,
although it is using them to get the feed descriptions.
