Update thru authenticating proxy doesn't work ...

Recommended Posts


I have a problem using PDN update option at work.

My company is using an authenticating proxy (i.e. : I have to enter a userid/password to access the Internet thru the proxy). When using the update option, I receive the error message "HTTP 407 : Proxy Authentication Required" which is correct. But in this case the PDN behavior should be to ask the user for proxy credentials and retry to update.

Best Regards,

updating through proxy has been known before for giving errors. Best thing to do is go to the download page and download the new version. Then go to add/remove programs. Remove the old Paint.NET and install the new version.

Other then that, ya I to think Paint.NET should have proxy options just like many other programs. EG: AVG Virus Scanner has options for it so it can get updates. Who knows maybe it already in the making or maybe Rick will think about it.
