    Question Apps trough WiFi with proxy problem
    I have seen this problem many times. The thing is my school has a WiFi with proxy authentication, and none of the apps except for Safari and Mail work. The thing is that I found a solution, but it doesn't really work for me, maybe you can help fix it.

    It was said that I should set my proxy trough Terminal
    Code:
    export http_proxy=http://proxy:port
    As my proxy requires authentication, I found that it should go as
    Code:
    export http_proxy=http://login:pass@proxy:port
    The Terminal gives me no error, but no confirmation either. Apps still don't work. Oh, and also, ping command does somethign weird - for example, if I enter
    Code:
    ping http://modmyi.com
    it shows
    Code:
    trying to connect to http://modmyi.com.r1g.edu.lv
    r1g.edu.lv is my schools domain name. How and why is that happening?

    Anyway, hope you can help me out

    It's cause if the school doesn't no where the connection is coming from. It won't let it. It's like that at my school too.

    I guess I should also mention ,that it's a corporate network at my school, and I had to register my iPhone's wifi adress. Is there no way around it? I'd really like that, cause my cell data is capped at 100 Mb/month.
