#10 Proxy not used


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
tooltip says:

"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.

    I can confirm this (NT4-SP6, FreeReader 2.5 build 567). When
    setting up a new feed, FR shows the correct feed name in the
    Adding New Feed dialog, but then the feed is marked as
    unavailable in the tree view. Tooltip in my case reads:

    Socket Error # 11001

    Host not found.

    Bug already present in 2.90

    Analyzing the connections using TCPView, when adding a new
    feed, a connection for Feedreader is opened (the correct PID
    is used); instead, in update phase, a connection for feed is
    opened, but handled by a process with PID = 0 (usually System).

    I hope this helps.

    I can confirm it too. Version 2.90 in Windows 2000
    Professional. Feedreader happily ignores the proxy settings.
