View Full Version : sync won't connect using wifi proxy settings

The only data connection I have available to me for my tablet at work is a foxfi provided hotspot with an http proxy running on the phone and the setting for the proxy set up in the WiFi profile on the tablet.

I tried logging out and back in and received a could not connect error message. I'm a little confused as to why it doesn't work when the podcast add feed feature can connect and works.

I have also tried turning off the proxy, and using a Bluetooth VPN connection (via foxfi and pdanet).

What additional information can I provide to help diagnose the connectivity issue?

asdef1,

The only thing I can think of is that cross device syncing runs over a secure connection (https) - which uses different ports than normal http.
My guess is that something in the your proxy settings (or the proxy itself) does not handle secure connections.
