I was at a client site today and their proxy server is
configured for authentication, but with a blank
username and password. RSSBandit does not support this
configuration in the options dialog, so I was unable to
get it to communicate to the outside world.

I know this is a strange configuration (I have seen it
a few times now), maybe it would be worth adding
support for blank usernames and passwords?

    If you don't check 'Proxy requires authentication' then this should work the same way.

    Pretty sure that I tried that. I might be back at the same place next week actually, i'll give that a go (this proxy does require authentication, it's just that the uname/pwd is blank)
