We have a proxy server running in our institute which requires authentication. While I can run my browser in the emulator after providing the proxy settings, I cannot run any other application which requires internet connection. I am developing an app. and I would like to know if there is a way to provide proxy settings ( for my app, or all apps ) so that I can get google maps working. I know that there was a bug, but is that fixed by now or is there some hack which tries to overcome that problem? It would be of great help even if I can get a local solution i.e access google maps from my app, not necessary that all apps which require an internet connection run.
