I have searched on these forums an answer to my spesific issue with no joy, so am creating a post.
If this has been answered on another topic and I obviously missed it, please give me a /slap and the link.
I downloaded then installed the latest ace updater to my office workstation in order to get daily updates, then the idea is to just ferry them home via USB flash. The updater installed fine, I open the updater and then get the following message:
WAU Version (18.104.22.1688) assembly version (22.214.171.1248)
Auto-retry of addon list load
Error During Download: System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required.
at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.EndGetResponse(IAsyncResult asyncResult)
at System.Net.WebClient.GetWebResponse(WebRequest request, IAsyncResult result)
at System.Net.WebClient.DownloadBitsResponseCallback(IAsyncResult result)
We use a proxy server at the office, so using a browser (Firefox) allows me direct access to any of the wowace pages to see any content as the browser have (obviously doh!) a settings page where I can configure the proxy settings.
Does the aceupdater have a settings file or configuration utility where I can tell it what proxy to use?
Also, do I have to have WoW installed on my PC for the updater to work at all? (I cannot see why it would need a working copy of WoW installed, but entertain me on this question please...)
Interesting question. I think I'll go and add explicit support for proxies to NetherPanel to facilitate people in your position.
As for you, I doubt WAU has explicit support for proxy servers and authentication with them. The best thing I can think of for you to do, be it as a temporary workaround or permanent one, is set up a local proxy server that uses no authentication and simply forwards and requests to it to your real proxy server; then set up your PC settings such that the local proxy server is used instead.
This kind of thing is done often by people that have local ad filters like proximitron. Proximitron is a local proxy where you can configure your real proxy in. All web requests you make should be configured to go to your local (proximitron) proxy which then makes the same request to the real proxy and filters ads out of the reply.
IE is configured for our proxy and working (as is Firefox), but I see the aim of your question. .Net solution proved to be a little daunting for my (lack of) skills.
Jwowupdater fixed it for me with the easy proxy config, HOWEVER...
...the user-unfriendlyness (did I just rape the correct way to state that?) when trying to filter the add-ons is a little painfull.
All said and done, I am up and running now.
Thank you everyone.
