on GB I could set the proxy in andvanced WIFI settings and it worked perfectly.
I am using Junos Pulse to set up the VPN, this worked fine with my SG2 and my Note.
Now on ICS I cannot get inot the ....advanced settings.... as I have mentioned in my post I know where this normally is to find and I tried to check this option after long pressing the particular WIFI spot, it appears and I check it but nothing happens........
Yes, I know that android has a problem with proxy, thats why I am using JUNOS PULSE . it is an app from Juniper Networks (firewall hardware manufacturer) and it worked fine, but I have to set the proxy IP and Port manually.
Again, I know where those settings normally are, but they stay grey and cannot be used.
So I'd like to ask someone here to verify my finding. Again, can s.o just go to WIFI....long tap your connection, then check advanced settings. Then please control, if this feature is available after saving. In my case it is not...............
thanks in advance for the support
and , of course Auto proxy is not of any use for my problem, also sorry but the stock browsers can never be set up for proxy. In Android only the Connection (in this case the WIFI) can be set up to talk to an fixed IP on a fixed port.
May be it helps if I describe what Junos Pulse is doing: Junos Puls is connecting to the server , establishes a VPN and gives your devise a new IP(internal) and catches the traffic and routes it to the proxy. But this proxy IP and port you have to publish first. This is normally done in Android by setting the advanced settings in the appropriate connection to the proxy IP and Port. Hope this helps
