    Hi

    I had posted this question in a few android/phone based forums and unfortunately no one there that can offer a solution. Hence, I joined here and looking for a solution and I am sure it is doable as one of my other phone is able to do it so basically it must be something to do with the settings on the phone or installing an additional pieve of software or app. Here is the question....

    I am trying to connect to my office wifi which uses a proxy server.

    Scenario 1: I am using Samsung Bada (wave 1), connected to the internet successfully and also any applications that require an internet connection including Samsung's app store.

    While, connecting via open networks like home wifi and other friends' wifi also worked without any issue.

    Scenario 2: Now I also have an android based Galaxy pocket: even after entering all the required proxy setting as mentioned above, I can access websites via browser but cannot access samsung's app store, google's play store, skype, sipdroid etc.,

    I know it is nothing to do with the network administration as I am still accessing via my samsung wave but not via android. Please help me in identifying what I am missing. Is there anything like a network profile I need to assign for these applications?

    thanks
    S

    We don't like to send people elsewhere, but for something like this your corporate IT department has the most knowledge of the network and how to use it.
