[Q] 3.1 Proxy for apps?
So, I am really glad that you can now set the proxy for individual connections so that I don't have to keep switching on the proxy at university and switching it back off when I get home.
But my main issue is that the proxy only seems to work for the browser.
When the browser connects to our proxy, it asks for my student number and password, and then it allows my through the proxy and I can browse the net.
But with 3.0.1, gmail and the other apps still couldn't get through the proxy, as authentication seems to be only for the browser.
I assume it will be the same with 3.1, but will have to double check on Monday when I go in again, as I only got the update today.
The android developers site
that has the list of fixes for 3.1 says this:
"This proxy configuration is automatically used by the Browser when the Wi-Fi access point is connected, and may optionally be used by other apps."
So my questions is, how do we access the "optionally be used by other apps" part?
I don't want to root to use 3rd part software.
