RSS Bandit does not recognize new feeds when connected to internet via a proxy server.

When connected from home, where no proxy server setting is required, everything is fine ... can add and update feeds.

When in the office, have tried all combinations of Network Connection settings.
- Don't use a proxy server :: of course it fails to update and allow the addition of new feeds.
- Take over proxy server settings from Internet Explorer :: is not updating the feeds and is not prompting for proxy authorization. When adding a new feed returns the message "Sorry, no RSS Feed could be located." eg: http://msdn.microsoft.com/rss.xml is a valid RSS feed.
- Use private proxy server settings :: seems to try to connect to the feed for some time (about 30 seconds) before it eventually fails. Have tried ports 80 and 8080, no luck.

    The CLR 1.1 does not support any authenticated proxy. The only chance for you would be to force Bandit to run with CLR 2.0 (change the RssBandit.exe.config).
    Please read the related forum posts at www.rssbandit.org/forum how do you get the auth. proxy running (e.g. search for "proxy"), I cannot remember the exact steps this moment, sorry.
