    You should configure the proxy you use within Tools|Options - Network Connection Tab-.

    I was about to log this as a bug myself, when using an authenticated Proxy in RSSBandit the synchronisation doesn't work with external sources and moans about needing Proxy auth (407). This suggests that it's not using the stored credentials on the Network Connection tab.

    Our own proxy configuration works like this (we based the implementation on this article: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/cc300743.aspx ):

    1. If "Don't use a proxy" is set, we do nothing specific
      and use by default the settings from machine/app.config returned (specific CLR config seetings for network/proxy is yet built in, you can also try
      to use that to track the issue down)
    2. If "take over settings from IE" is set, we call <see cref="WebRequest.GetSystemWebProxy">GetSystemWebProxy</see>
      to retrive/return that specific proxy once.
    3. If "No proxy usage" is active, the WebRequest.GetSystemWebProxy is called on every web request, that in turn always use the latest system LAN settings.

    Anything specific in your LAN environment you can mention to help track down the issue?
